Meta submits detailed report about WhatsApp outage
WhatsApp outage – WhatsApp has submitted a report on the Tuesday outage. One day following the blackout, the government made a request for the information. According to earlier accounts, the requirement for a thorough report was procedural for any large nationwide internet disruption.
We still don’t know what this proposal contains. According to a report by PTI, which cited unnamed government officials, Meta has already submitted a report on the WhatsApp outage. The Tuesday shutdown was the result of questions from the IT Ministry. Following the downtime, WhatsApp and Meta released a statement in which they claimed that a technical mistake on their end was to blame.
The brief outage was caused by a technical mistake on our part, according to the statement, which has since been fixed. It did not provide clear explanations of the cause. ICERT, the nodal cybersecurity organization of the government, requested that Meta give a report on the WhatsApp outage.
On Tuesday at around noon, one of the longest WhatsApp outages ever started and lasted for about two hours. The government and WhatsApp have not publicly disclosed any information about the costs associated with the outage. However, it is anticipated that the interruption would have a significant impact. Text messages could not be sent or received by users. Even WhatsApp voice and video calls were not working. During the downtime, the Status feature did not function, along with other essential services like WhatsApp Business and WhatsApp Pay.
At the height of the outage in India, over 30,000 reports were available, according to Downdetector. The majority of the major metropolises, including Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata, Chennai, Bengaluru, and Lucknow, appeared to be the hotspots on the Downdetector live outage map. There had been an increase in reports of WhatsApp outages in other parts of the world as well. Blackout reports increased significantly in South Asian and few European nations as well. Business Today has contacted WhatsApp to get confirmation that the report has been submitted.
