(Web Desk) - WhatsApp suffered yet another outage on Wednesday due to which users from different countries including Spain, Malaysia, England, Scotland, Ireland and others have been unable to log into the app. The problems which the Malaysians reported were issues with login and difficulty in sending and receiving messages.

But people in other countries such as the USA and Mexico are still believed to be having difficulties sending or receiving messages. The outage affected people who use the service on iOS, Android as well as Windows mobile OS. Twitter is one of the leading social media sites which serves as a great platform to share information. The apex court asked the government to ensure that 160 million Indian subscribers are not "entrapped" in any manner by service providers like WhatsApp, which is providing free services to its users.

WhatsApp is hoping that this problem of the frequent outages will be dealt with and users will use all features of WhatsApp like before.

North Korea missile program progressing faster than expected, Seoul says
North Korea has claimed that the missile it tested on Sunday was a new type of rocket capable of carrying a large nuclear warhead. Han said South Korea's military separately detected the Sunday launch, using its own intelligence assets.

"This time, about half of the complaints (56%) around were regarding the connection issues". 35 per cent complained about trouble receiving messages and 10 per cent claimed facing issues with logging into the application.

Users in Germany and some other European countries also encountered the problem. In addition, users from Britain, Belgium, besides the Netherlands too have come up with the malfunctioning.
