So far this week we have had more drops in important services than in previous months. To the very notorious fall of Google services when we tried to connect with our user was added that of Spotify shortly after. Today it is the turn of Telegram, which does not work in Spain due to the fall of its servers in Europe.
Telegram is down and it is impossible to use it
The popular messaging and group communication application has been showing problems for a few minutes and according to Downdetector it is not only in Spain.
Western Europe is getting the worst of it, as we see on the incident map.
The problems began to be reported after 2:00 p.m. Spanish peninsular time, but it was not until about thirty minutes later that the impact increased.
The most numerous problems are those reported by users to the unable to connect to servers. Others, those who can, see impossible to send and receive messages, and some they can’t even connect with their username and password.
The company itself has communicated the incident using its Twitter profile for Spain, as we can read.
Some of our users, mainly from Europe and the Middle East, are experiencing connection problems. We are working to get them back online. Please wait. Sorry for the inconvenience!

So, we just have to wait for them to solve the failures that have caused the problems in the servers, which affect Western Europe but also the Middle East.
The Telegram entry has been dropped: it does not work in Spain and the rest of Europe appears first in El Androide Libre.
