Meta Platforms said it had restored WhatsApp connectivity issues after thousands of users globally, including Pakistan, reported problems accessing the messaging app on Wednesday, according to outage tracking website Downdetector.com.

“We’re back, happy chatting!” the Whatsapp Twitter account posted in a tweet.

The company had earlier said it was experiencing disruptions “receiving incoming messages and message delivery on Whatsapp,” according to Meta’s status dashboard.

The messaging platform suffered outages at around 1:00am in Pakistan, and the users were unable to use the services for at least an hour, according to Downdetector.com.
