If in the more recent times you tried to message someone on Signal, you might have faced some issues. And no – it hasn’t got to do something with your phone – rather, it’s the service itself. Millions and millions of people all across the globe also actually have had problems at the very same time, as it now appears as if the app’s servers got overloaded.
Reports of the platform now working are still making their way, but it appears as if the worse is over. If you still cannot access the chat app, unfortunately enough, you’ll have to wait a bit longer for the server to get back on its feet.
For now though, we’ll have to wait a bit longer before the company goes on and gives us an official reason so as to why many folks found that signal wasn’t exactly working today. However, it is indeed a sure bet that the exodus from WhatsApp had something to do with it.
Many people likely migrated to Telegram which of course is more popular than Signal. However, a recent tweet from Tesla CEO Elon Musk promoted Signal as a good option, and users hammered the app’s servers pretty hard.
Nonetheless, coming back to the topic, while it would indeed be a rocky road for a while during its transition, one would have to imagine that more sooner than later, Signal will indeed be back up and running.
