WhatsApp users reported outages and unstable functioning of the messenger worldwide Wednesday afternoon. Users in Brazil, Jamaica, Canada, Israel, India, Russia, Egypt, the US, the UK and other locations have been affected, according to social media reports.

There was no statement from the company regarding the reported technical issues immediately available.

The outage, just like the previous one, caused a meme storm on Twitter.

While some users panicked, being deprived of their favorite messenger, the others called the outage a chance to actually go outside and meet people in person.

Users of the competing messaging service Telegram rejoiced.
