UPDATE 2/22/2022 2:48 PM ET: Slack says everything should be back up and running now. In an update to its status page, the company wrote: “We’ve resolved the issue, and all impacted customers should now be able to access Slack. You may need to reload Slack (Cmd/Ctrl + Shift + R) to see the fix on your end. Apologies for the disruption!” The original report can be found below

If you use Slack for work or just keeping up with friends, you may have noticed issues with sending messages this morning. It’s not you, Slack is down for many people right now.

Downdetector is showing an uptick in user reports starting at 8:54 AM ET. Reports on the site peaked at 9:16 AM, with 11,001 people reporting issues.

Slack’s status page showed everything as operational for minutes after the outage started, but is now throwing errors, noting that “Slack is not loading for some users.”

Issues reported by Slack include login, messaging, notification, and connection problems. Surprisingly, calls are still showing as functional.

The company acknowledges the outage on Twitter

Additionally, from their status page, they noted, “We’re still actively investigating this issue, but we don’t have any new information to share at this time. We’ll be back with another update in 30 minutes.”

There is also an Amazon AWS outage spike right now. It is unclear if it is related to the Slack outage at this time, however.

Twitter users are also noting the outage, with tweets starting in the same time frame as Downdetector.
