#WhatsAppBriefOutage – On the New Year’s eve, WhatsApp went through a brief outage due to massive amount of texts sent and received on that night. WhatsApp outage was primarily centred in Germany and UK, while U.S. appeared to be completely unaffected, according to DownDetector that measures outages and service interruptions. The Facebook-OwnedIM service has more than 900 million users and also 10 billion text messages are sent every day using this app. This tells us why users would have freaked out—Binge WhatsApp users. WhatsApp is a cross-platform app with users spread over iOS, Android and Windows Phone, making it a more practically sound app than iMessage. WhatsApp users had to switch to others platforms like Twitter and Facebook to send and receive NYE’s wishes.
