(Reuters) – Microsoft Corp. said late Monday that the recent change it introduced may have caused a major disruption, affecting users’ access to a variety of Microsoft 365 services, including Outlook.com and Microsoft Teams.
The developer of the Windows and Office software said he did not “see an increase in successful connections,”
“A while ago nothing worked, then I went into files in Teams and it worked, now nothing works. Well, I guess now I have an excuse not to work and not watch TV, “tweeted one of the Twitter users.
“We are pursuing steps to alleviate this problem. At the same time, we’re redirecting traffic to alternative systems to provide additional relief to affected users, “Microsoft said on its status page, without specifying how many users are affected.
Several other Twitter users complained that the interruption meant they could miss their job interviews and college assignment deadlines.
The Xbox maker also told bit.ly/339pRgI that they are working on evaluating other solutions while investigating the root cause of the outage.
