{Updated} WhatsApp, Facebook And Instagram Now Working Again

A phone showing WhatsApp Business start screen

Updated: We had published the following article but now WhatsApp, Facebook And Instagram are working just fine.

WhatsApp seem to be having a rough time at the moment as users are failing to download pictures, videos, documents or voice notes. But texting is working as normal and also you can send photos (only that a receiver can’t download it).


If you try to download media you are met with a message that tells you to ask the sender to resend the photo or video (see below). Users in UK, Italy, South Africa are all struggling to use the app properly.


Since WhatsApp is owned by Facebook, Facebook itself and Instagram also are experiencing the same problem.
