Last time WhatsApp went down was Dec 31, 2016.

Reasons behind the outage are unclear, however, the Facebook owned-company announced last year that its mobile app will be no longer supported on millions of phones, the old ones, by June 2017. As changes in technology mean it has to phase out compatibility with older phones, which might be the case.
