What is even more annoying and frustrating than the software you need to use being bugged? That’s an easy answer: the software you need to use actually not working at all.

Of course, even some of the most utilized and popular services can have downtime, due to maintenance or unforeseen problems, but the bright side is that it rarely happens.

However, people that were trying to make use of some of Microsoft’s services yesterday were surprised to notice that many of them were down at the same time.

Teams and Outlook were both down together

Even though Microsoft provides some of the most reliable software solutions, there are also times when bugs or glitches just won’t let us do our jobs.

That being said, just know that the problem isn’t always on our end. In fact, from time to time, servers that sustain all these apps and programs can have problems of their own.

Microsoft is now said to investigate what happened with Outlook and Teams since users could not use them at all.

Thus, if you’ve been experiencing issues accessing Microsoft Teams or Outlook, just know that you’re not the only one.

Many users in India, the UK, as well as other areas around the world, are reporting that they currently cannot access the two services.

The Downdetector website, which monitors outages of online services in real time, showed that there were more than 3,700 incidents of people reporting issues with Microsoft Teams.

Users in the Philippines, United Kingdom, Australia, Britain, and the United Arab Emirates are also reportedly having problems.

Note that during the outage, people reported being unable to send or receive messages, join calls or use any Teams feature.

And, as you expected, many of them took to Twitter to share their experience during the service disruption.

The Redmond tech giant has been made aware of the situation and is now investigating what might have caused the outage.

If you are still experiencing problems, just know that Microsoft is working on solving them and we will keep you updated as soon as new information becomes available.
