You are waiting for a text, call or video call on WhatsApp and the messaging application no longer works suddenly? Have you tried to send dozens of messages or multimedia content but none are delivered? Don't be alarmed, the first thing to do is check the status of WhatsApp servers.
Many times in the last year it has happened that WhatsApp didn't work due to malfunctioning problems in their servers or simple maintenance.
What to do to know if the servers are working?
Many of you do not know that until recently, WhatsApp allowed you to check the status of the servers directly from the application under the heading “Settings -> Help".
It is unknown why this feature was removed, but don't worry, we have an alternative.
The owners of the Twitter account WaBetaInfo, the same ones who find hidden features in the beta of the application, on their blog have added a widget in the named sidebar WA system status.
Once connected to the site just read what is written under that heading, if the writing will be “The service is correctly working” then the servers are working properly.
In case there were any problems, there would be a different warning.
Another useful thing is to follow the hashtag #WhatsAppDown on Facebook, Instagram, Google Plus but in particular Twitter as on the latter social network when the servers are down the hashtag enters the trends.
After having carried out all the checks listed above and having verified that the disservice is caused by the WhatsApp servers, you can not help but wait for the application development team to solve the problem.
What to do in case of non-server problems?
If despite the verification made WhatsApp does not functions we suggest you try to connect to another WiFi network or check that your SIM data plan is active.
