Slack is down: Messaging app confirms some users are down


Slack confirmed widespread outages on Tuesday morning, writing that some customers may be “experiencing issues” with the platform loading.

In another post, they apologized for the issue and said they were “digging into the issue with the highest priority”. Slack also confirmed the issues people were reporting on its status site.

The situation was a major talking point on social media, as some returned from long holiday weekends to find they were unable to communicate with team members.

AWS, Github and Peloton were among the other sites reporting outages alongside Slack.

Downdetector noted that outage reports for all platforms began around 8:45 a.m. ET.



Slack said some users were reporting problems signing in, messaging, sending files and receiving notifications.

Slack already experienced a major outage on January 4, 2021, which was the first business day of the year for many. The company later blamed the outage on infrastructure issues that led to various issues.

Salesforce acquired Slack for $27.7 billion in 2021, with the intention of making it the glue of the company’s Customer 360 efforts.
