What can we do?
Unfortunately as users we can do little or nothing when there is a general drop in service. We can only wait for Facebook (current owner of the messaging application) to solve the problem.
We can also use one of the most widespread alternatives to WhatsApp. Indeed, we are talking about Telegram. There are many users who, in the face of the latest WhatsApp crashes, have decided to install Telegram to have it as an alternative to the well-known messaging application.
