The  app refused to properly start up for some users, leaving them stuck with a 'Connecting...' message, which after two hours, "Facebook"  which owns the app made an announcement,  that the mobile chat program was back up and running, but it didn't say what caused the problem.

A source said, 'Earlier today, WhatsApp users in all parts of the world were unable to access WhatsApp for a few hours,'

'We have now fixed the issue and apologize for the inconvenience.' 

No further information was provided. They have been contacted for more information on the cause behind the glitch. 

The US was among the countries affected, although most of the incidents appeared to be in the UK and Europe.

The incident occurred the same day that the app announced there were more people (175 million) using its clone of Snapchat's Stories function than were using Snapchat itself (161 million).
