Telegram is down for Brazilians [atualizado 3x: agora é o WhatsApp]

WhatsApp Messenger is the most used messenger in Brazil, but undeniable that Telegram has been gaining ground here in the team At least he guaranteed success!

We hardly see the service experiencing major instability (as has happened many times with WhatsApp), but today this is happening:

Our users in America are currently experiencing connection issues. Our engineers are working to resolve this.

A small number of users from other countries may also be affected (mainly in specific media loading and access to bots).

Upon entering Telegram, it keeps trying to connect (showing the message “Updating”) and nothing happens. Obviously, when trying to send a message (either written or audio), it is not sent.

For now, no deadline has been given for everything to be reinstated. All you can do is sit back and wait.

There is not much to do to remedy the situation, for example, closing and opening the app again since the problem involves the servers. The way to use other solutions (WhatsApp, iMessage, Skype, Viber, etc.) until everything returns to normal. 😉

And everything is back! Sorry for the delay. Some minor issues may take a little longer (some chats are not loaded, seem to be deleted, etc.) – this will be resolved very soon. Welcome to the real world.
