Snapchat and Instagram are both struggling on Monday afternoon, with users unable to send chats.
Testing both apps showed the ability to send snaps and see stories remains on Snapchat, while on Instagram you can still view your feed, stories and send pictures.
"We're aware some Snapchatters are having trouble sending Chats.
We are looking into it," Snapchat tweeted at 1:51 p.m. PT.
