If you are trying and failing to send a message on Snapchat then you are definitely not alone. The popular messaging service is currently down and not working for thousands of users across the globe and it’s one of the biggest outages we’ve seen in a long time. Things seem to have hit troubles at around 5.45pm tonight with the problems still ongoing.
Independent outage monitor Down Detector has recorded a massive spike in Snapchat down reports.
At the time of writing Down Detector UK has registered a peak of more than 48,000 reports – that’s massive!
Snapchat users are now flocking to other social media sites, such as Twitter, to vent their frustration at the glitch with one fan, named @Sarahlouise, saying, “XCan you please fix it my Snapchat is down so annoying.”
There’s currently no word on what is causing the issues or when things will be back online but Express.co.uk will bring you full updates as we get them.
