Workplace messaging software Slack appears to be suffering outages.

According to Down Detector, a website that tracks website connectively in real-time, the application is going down across Europe, including in the Netherlands, Germany and France.

Users on social media have been quick to complain about the issues. One Twitter user wrote: "Is Slack down? I can't access it from either WiFi or 4G." Another individual added this morning: "The day we all dreaded. Slack is down. And now, how are we supposed to get anything done?"

Slack's status page has confirmed that users are facing "connectivity troubles."

A short statement reads: "We're getting reports that customers can't connect to Slack. We're investigating as we speak and we apologize for the disruption."

Slack 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."

It was launched in 2014.
