WhatsApp down, slow, or inconsistent for you? You're not alone!

WhatsApp down, slow, or inconsistent for you? You're not alone!

WhatsApp, the cross-platform instant messaging service recently acquired by Facebook for $16+ billion, seems to be having some trouble this morning. We're getting multiple reports of it simply not working, the send button being grayed out, messages sending slowly, or it working sometimes but not others. In other words, of WhatsApp being a bag of frustration today.

Even if WhatsApp Messenger is your favorite, there are a ton of WhatsApp alternatives you can use in case of emergency, or just to stay connected, including Apple's own iMessage.

If you're experiencing any problems with WhatsApp today let us know where you are, when it stopped working, and when it starts working again.
