If you were having those late night chats with your group(s), then this would have been very inconvenient!
WhatsApp servers are returning to normal, after they went kaput last night.
The issue started late last night, as people found they could open the app but weren't able to connect to the servers.
It's still unknown what caused the outage in the first place.
The outage went on for hours, with many people taking to Twitter to show just how much it affected them:
When #whatsapp is broken & it feels like it's 1997 again & you may have to revert to penning a letter to your mate Aine from the Gealtacht— Ruth Cotter (@RuthCotter) May 3, 2017

Whatsapp shuts down for just few minutes. And the world was in disarray.— Valz (@I_amval) May 3, 2017
