Work chat gone quiet? Microsoft Teams down for thousands of users

If your Microsoft Teams work chat has gone quiet this Friday afternoon, chances are your boss didn’t let you out early for the weekend.

More than 13,000 incidents of people reporting issues with Microsoft Teams were logged on outage tracking website Downdetector.com as of 2 p.m. Eastern.

Downdetector is a service that tracks outages by collating status reports from a number of sources, including user-submitted errors on its platform.

Microsoft said in a post on X, formerly known as Twitter, that it identified a “networking issue impacting a portion of the Teams Service,” though it’s not exactly clear what caused the issue.

“The failovers for the North and South America regions are ongoing and we continue to monitor.”

It’s unclear when the issue will be resolved.
