WhatsApp is totally unusable for Xiaomi phone users in India since morning.

The company is working on a fix and while they are it, maybe time for you to go outside and meet real friends?

Fix : Download the apk from WhatsApp.com/android and see if it works for you.

PS: We will update when the official fix is available.
