Microsoft Teams Is Down

Slacking Off

The wobbly weeks continue for Redmond, as the company is experiencing another stability issue. This time, it is the Microsoft Teams service that is wobbling at the time of this writing.

Teams is a critical part of the company’s collaboration efforts, and competes directly with Slack.

The chat app is key for Microsoft.

After all, it was only back in September that the software titan claimed that Teams was the fastest growing business app in its history. This incident can probably be termed as growing pains — though it does not reflect all too well on the Redmond cloud.

Microsoft confirmed the presence of the issue on Twitter, with the support team admitting that there indeed was a problem with Teams.

Users around Europe and beyond began reporting issues connecting to the online collaboration platform around 10:00 UTC. Both the app and web versions of Teams were said to be affected, with user sessions reconnecting and requests to restart popping up.

This, when both Office 365 and OneDrive have faltered over the last few weeks.

Teams, obviously, is deeply integrated with Office 365, and that makes it an important piece of the productivity puzzle that the Seattle based company is aiming for. So much so that it replaced Skype for Business with this platform that combines workplace chat, meetings, notes and attachments.

Here’s hoping Teams is back up online soon.

Unlike some other recent outages that took a while to fix.
