Hot off the heels of WhatsApp announcing they are going to allow users to share any file type up to 100Mb, users in China have started reporting that they are having trouble sending photos, videos and even some texts.

According to the New York Times, analysts have confirmed this is the work of the Chinese government.

Note, this is only a partial ban, but it is not beyond the realms of possibilities that the Facebook owned WhatsApp gets added to the ever increasing list of fully banned sites and apps.
