- Zoom has confirmed that it’s suffering from a partial service outage.
- The firm says it’s investigating the issue right now.
We saw Spotify go down for users last week and Gmail and its productivity suite experience woes some time after. Now, it’s Zoom’s turn to suffer from connectivity issues.
Multiple users have reported issues with the popular video conferencing service, with the company now noting a partial outage of its Zoom Meetings and Zoom Video Webinars features on its status dashboard.
“We have received reports of users being unable to visit the Zoom website (zoom.us) and unable to start and join Zoom Meetings and Webinars. We are currently investigating and will provide updates as we have them,” read a statement on the dashboard.
Users on popular outage tracking website Downdetector have reported that the service is disrupted in the likes of Argentina, Brazil, Egypt, Romania, Russia, and the US. Some users also note that they were able to access Zoom via the mobile or desktop apps as opposed to their web clients. For what it’s worth, I was able to conduct a meeting here in South Africa via the phone app with a colleague in Germany.
We’ll update the article as soon as we hear more from the video chat service. In the meantime, is Zoom down for you? Let us know in the comments section!
