(Reuters) – Microsoft Corp. (NASDAQ:MSFT) said Thursday it is investigating an issue with its Microsoft 365 services and features, including the workspace 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 that people rely heavily on to work remotely during the COVID-19 pandemic.
“We are investigating an issue where users may not be able to access Microsoft 365 services and features. We will provide additional information as soon as possible,” Microsoft said in a tweet at https://twitter.com/MSFT365Status/status /. 1377738432265396225.
Downdetector only tracks outages by gathering status reports from a number of sources including user-submitted errors on its platform. The failure can affect a large number of users.
