WhatsApp has submitted a report on the Tuesday outage. One day following the blackout, the government made a request for the information. According to earlier accounts, the requirement for a thorough report was procedural for any large nationwide internet disruption. We still don’t know what this proposal contains.
According to a report by PTI, which cited unnamed government officials, Meta has already submitted a report on the WhatsApp outage. The Tuesday shutdown was the result of questions from the IT Ministry. After the incident, WhatsApp and Meta released a statement in which they claimed that a technical issue on their end was to blame for the downtime.
ICERT, the nodal cybersecurity organisation of the government, requested that Meta give a report on the WhatsApp outage. On Tuesday at around noon, one of the longest WhatsApp outages ever started and lasted for about two hours. The government and WhatsApp have not publicly disclosed any information about the costs associated with the outage. However, it is anticipated that the interruption would have a significant impact. Text messages could not be sent or received by users. Even WhatsApp voice and video calls were not working. During the downtime, the Status feature did not function, along with other essential services like WhatsApp Business and WhatsApp Pay.
