WhatsApp hasn’t had the best of starts to the New Year. A few minutes after midnight as the world went online to wish each other a Happy New Year, the WhatsApp servers it seems weren’t able to cope up with the load. At the time of filing this story, we are still unable to connect to the messaging app.
Around 15-20 minutes post midnight, WhatsApp stopped responding for many. When one opens the app, you see it trying to connect to the servers. At the time of filing this story, the app is still trying to connect. We are also not the only ones facing the issue. A quick look at social media shows how users are frustrated at the timing of this issue.
