New Delhi, October 3, 2017 : Who doesn’t check their Whatsapp first thing in the morning immediately after waking up?

Whatsapp, the most popular instant messaging app, is more than a need; it is a necessity. You may miss reading the morning newspaper, but we are sure you can never afford to not check your whatsapp messages.

In such a scenario, Whatsapp users around the globe, including India, were faced with horror when they were unable to log into the app on November 3.

Whatsapp users from all around the world complained of connectivity issues as they encountered problems sending or receiving texts and were unable to log into the Facebook-owned Whatsapp.

WhatsApp was previously down for a few hours in May this year too, as users in all parts of the world went into frenzy and panic.

On Friday again, several users took to Twitter to confirm if there really is a problem or they are lone sufferers, and soon began a trend as reactions ranging from pure confusion, to agony to frustration to humor surfaced on the internet. The hashtag #whatsappdown was also trending on the micro-blogging site.

We bring you a glimpse of how the users took to Twitter to vent their frustration,

Seems like everybody was hooked onto Twitter for only one reason. Yes, we were all in this together!

Twitter users were quick to explain their frustrating using hilarious GIFS.

We cannot argue how factually sound this user is.

Optimism at its best, we would say!

“Currently, the first supported external service is Instagram. Tapping Instagram, after inserting your credentials, your WhatsApp account will be correctly linked to your Instagram profile,” it added.

Currently, when you archive a chat, WhatsApp automatically unarchives it once a new message is received from that chat.

With the Vacation Mode feature, archived chats won’t be unarchived if you have previously muted them.

The option will be available in Settings and then Notifications.

“The Vacation mode is also useful if you don’t want a specific chat in your Chats List: if you mute and archive it, you will never see it again, except if you view your Archived Chats,” the report said.
