Taking to Twitter early on Tuesday, WhatsApp said: “Apologies to everyone who hasn’t been able to use WhatsApp today. We’re starting to slowly and carefully get WhatsApp working again.”
“Thank you so much for your patience. We will continue to keep you updated when we have more information to share.”
According to Sputnik, users began reporting that Instagram, WhatsApp, and other services under the Facebook corporate umbrella are now available as usual for the first time since Monday evening, when reports of the outage and disrupted services began coming in.

Meanwhile, Telegram announced on Twitter that users of its messenger in some countries may face difficulties loading chats and receiving notifications due to widespread disruptions on Facebook.
