Microsoft has started investigation to identify issues with its Microsoft 365 services and features, including workplace messaging app Teams and Azure, after many users were unable to access them.
Outage tracking website Downdetector showed over 8,000 incidents of people reporting issues with Teams, an app relied on by people for remote work during the COVID-19 pandemic.
“We are investigating an issue in which users may be unable to access Microsoft 365 services and features. We will provide additional information as soon as possible,” said Microsoft in a tweet.
Downdetector tracks outages by collating status reports from a series of sources, including user-submitted errors on its platform. The outage might be affecting a larger number of users.
