WhatsApp is one of the most popular instant messaging applications in the world. It is used by more than 2 billion people around the world and in Latin America it is among the five most popular. The app is always in constant development and including new features.

The app usually works without major inconveniences, that is not to say that it is free of problems. There is a possibility that something as simple as a message completely blocks its operation. This does not refer to malicious or inappropriate content, but to a animala An error that occurs in a computer program that conflicts with the application.

The message is the following: wa.me/channel. Receiving or even sending does not pose any problem. The conflict is triggered when one of the users enters the link.

WhatsApp crashes and generally slows down the operation of the phone. The experience may vary from mobile to mobile depending on your processing power and Android operating system version.

The reason for this outage is that WhatsApp is trying to open a channel that it has not been given a way to identify and therefore cannot access. That creates a loop that the app can’t get out of. It’s not a serious problem, but it will be a waste of time until it’s fixed.

How to solve it?

Enter the mobile settings and follow this path: Settings>Applications>WhatsApp>Force Quit.
