WhatsApp is reportedly down with users facing problems when trying to share media such as images, audio and videos. The issue seems to affect only the file sharing feature on WhatsApp though, as texting doesn’t seem affected at all.

The issue is global, and started around 2 hours ago at around 6.40 p.m., according to DownDetector. Aside from being unable to share files, the issue also reportedly affects users who are trying to update their WhatsApp Status.

Some appear to be unaffected though. I personally was able to send out images from my phone and retrieve them on my PC, however Super Daddy could not open the images I sent to him.

It seems that the problem is isolated to WhatsApp, with Facebook and Instagram running fine. Is your WhatsApp acting up? Or do you have no issues with it? Let us know!

Pokdepinion: Well, I usually share media via Telegram anyway. The compression in Whatsapp is ridiculous.
