Is Slack Down? App Says 'Connectivity Issues' Are Affecting All Workspaces

Workplace messaging application Slack appears to be suffering downtime today, with reports indicating that messages are not being transferred between contacts.

The Slack support team has confirmed that issues are ongoing.

In a Twitter conversation, responding to one complaint, it wrote: "So sorry for the troubles. Our team is on the case investigating it as we speak!"

In another, it wrote: "We're aware of the connectivity issues and having a look as we speak. So sorry for disrupting your day."

"We're really sorry about the trouble," it continued. "We're on the case to get things back to normal as soon as we can."

A third tweet read: "We're experiencing connectivity troubles and are on the case to get things back to normal ASAP."

The app's official status page says that "connectivity issues" are affecting all workspaces.

A mesage reads: "We've received word that all workspaces are having troubles connecting to Slack. We're currently investigating the issue, and will have updates shortly."

On Wednesday, reports were also surfacing about issues with Google Home. Earlier, outages occurred with Fortnite and Telegram.

Slack, launched in 2014, has 8 million daily active users. It is self-described online as a "collaboration hub that brings the right people together with all the right information and tools to get work done."

In a statement to Newsweek, the company acknowledged that problems were ongoing.

A spokesperson said: "We are experiencing connectivity issues right now, we are so sorry for any inconvenience. For the latest updates please keep an eye on @slackstatus and status.slack.com.

We're investigating connectivity issues for all workspaces, thanks for your patience, we'll have updates shortly. https://t.co/uQIDJzyLSV
