WhatsApp users worldwide have been thrown into turmoil this morning, as the messaging app suffered a major outage.
The service started experiencing issues at around 07:10 GMT, according to independent website DownDetector , which tracks major network outages.
Users in the Northern Europe, Africa and Indonesia appear to be the worst affected, although problems were also reported elsewhere in the world.
Many of the thousands of users affected took to rival social network Twitter to complain about the lack of service.
The messaging app has since resumed to normalcy, however the cause of the hiccup is yet to be made public.
