Snapchat – one of the biggest online messaging apps has stopped working on year eve for all the users around the world. According to the website health tracker Downdetector, tens of thousands of people reported issues with the app.
It was a painful moment for users around the world as they were trying to access Snapchat to wish their loved ones for the New Year. However, Snpachat was unresponsive and was not opening.
Looking forward to this issue, Snapchat tweeted: “We’re aware some Snapchatters are having trouble using the app. Hang tight, we’re working on it.”
