Zoom is currently down for a ton of people (updated)
It’s not you, it’s them.
UPDATE 9/15/2022 12:17 PM ET: Zoom should be up and running again. The company acknowledged the outage and noted that “everything should be working properly now.”
If you are trying to log into Zoom and keep getting broken links, don’t worry, you’re not alone, and it’s not your internet. People everywhere are noting that Zoom is having issues right now.
It appears to be affecting all ways to join, but not for everybody. Some say they can’t even dial-in, which is causing chaos in the work-from-home era.
Downdetector shows a spike in complaints starting approximately 32 minutes ago. People are also going to Twitter to voice their issues with the website.
Users on Twitter are also reporting that Zoom is down. Some can log in, but nothing loads. Others can’t even sign in right now.
If you can’t get into your scheduled meeting, maybe take that time to take a quick walk. Or any other self-care thing you can think of. Work will still be there when Zoom fixes its temporary outage.
