If you’re having trouble making your New Year’s Eve plans on WhatsApp, you’re not alone.

The mobile messaging service has confirmed that some users worldwide are experiencing service outages – but stressed that a fix is on the way.

A WhatsApp spokesperson told USA Today: “Some people have had trouble accessing WhatsApp today.

“We’re working to restore service back to 100% for everyone and we apologize for the inconvenience.”

No word yet on the cause of the outage, but the service does experience a spike in traffic during holidays. Last year, 54 billion messages were sent on New Year’s Eve.

WhatsApp Messenger was famously acquired by Facebook back in February 2014.
