Releasing a statement on Wednesday, Microsoft Corp announced that they are looking into an interruption of service related to Microsoft Teams, which barred users from accessing or leveraging features of Microsoft Teams. Microsoft did not reveal the number of users affected by the incident.

However, as per downdetector.com, a website tracking outages by collating status reports from sources including user submitted errors, more than 4,800 incidents were reported regarding Microsoft Teams around 10.00 pm ET. The website further revealed that more than 150 of these cases were related to Microsoft Office 365.

Microsoft Corp is not the only tech giant to be hit with outages last year; Meta Platforms experienced a six-hour interruption, during which users were unable to access valued services such as WhatsApp, Instagram, Facebook, and Messenger.
