Microsoft Teams: Hours after a Global Disruption, is back Online

According to the outage tracking website Downdetector.com, Microsoft investigated reports that the Microsoft Teams app was down for thousands of users.

Over 4,800 instances of customers reporting Teams issues occurred on Wednesday.




After receiving complaints from users who were unable to utilise the Teams app, Microsoft tweeted earlier today that they are investigating the issue.

But Microsoft, the technology titan, did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

During a recent deployment, we discovered that the connection to an internal storage service was broken.

We are attempting to divert traffic to a healthy service to mitigate the impact, Microsoft tweeted.

"Our telemetry reveals that Microsoft Teams functionality is starting to resume," the company claimed.

What the App Is

The proprietary business communication tool known as Microsoft Teams is a part of the MS 365 product line.

Teams competes heavily with Slack, which provides a service similar to Teams in that both feature office chat, video conferencing, file storage, and application integration.

Microsoft's current workplace communications and collaboration solutions, like Skype for Business and MS Classroom, will eventually be replaced by Teams.

During the COVID-19 outbreak, as more meetings moved online, Teams and other programmes like Zoom and Google Meet gained a lot of attention.

By 2021, there will be more than 250 million monthly users.

Microsoft first unveiled Teams at a New York event, then on March 14, 2017, it went live worldwide.

Brian MacDonald, MS Corporate Vice President, invented it during a corporate hackathon. He is currently in charge of it.

Teams is a web-based desktop application built on top of the Electron framework from GitHub, which combines the Chromium rendering engine with the Node.js JavaScript platform.
