Many users have opened their Snapchat app to find it down with a failed to send error that is causing serious sending problems late on September 17 evening. It’s not clear why snaps won’t send, or why the messages and chat issues have taken place for so long.
Judging by the early feedback that we have seen on social media, this looks like it could be an issue affecting every single Snapchat user at the moment.
Take a look at some of the responses for yourself below to see evidence of this, so we’re assuming that the Snapchat team are already working on seeing why Snapchat is not working today as it should.
Many users are pointing out things like ‘Snapchat won’t let me send message’, or in some cases, ‘Snapchat won’t let me text, but will let me send Snaps’.
These are some of the common symptoms that we can see happening right now to many users within the hour.
