It’s Snapchat’s turn to be down. Many people on Twitter are indeed complaining about using the hashtag. #snapchatdown. In addition, the number of reports on DownDetector has exploded to mention the bugs encountered.

Concretely, it is especially at the level of sending photos that users encounter concerns. We were able to verify at Frandroid: the text messages seem to go out correctly, but the images are not delivered to the recipient (s). Some people also have problems accessing their Snapchat accounts.

The month of October 2021 is definitely marked by several breakdowns. A few days ago, all of Facebook’s services (WhatsApp, Messenger, Instagram) were no longer working and again this Wednesday, October 13 in the morning, it was the OVH servers that fell due to human error.

No official explanation yet

So don’t be surprised if you can’t send your selfies and photos of all kinds to Snapchat, the problem is not with your connection, but with the application.

We’re aware that some Snapchatters are having issues using the app right now – hang tight, we’re looking into it!
