It is the latest in a series of outages to hit the Facebook-owned app, with a major incident in March last year leaving users cut off for nearly an entire day.
A Facebook spokesperson clarified Last March that the outage problem was due to a routine maintenance operation, which ended up triggering a bug responsible for the problem with uploading images and videos.
The app suffered 6,236 hours of deliberate disruption in 2019, largely as a result of authoritarian governments blocking access to it.
