This is officially a trend. This afternoon, Slack reported connectivity issues through its official status channel. We can confirm. Roughly half of our messages are going through. And yes, it’s super duper annoying.
“We’re investigating problems with connectivity at this time,” the company writes. “We’re sorry for the interruption and will keep you posted as soon as we have an update”
This is the third large connection issue the popular chat service has experienced in roughly a month or so. We’ll report back as we hear more.
Update: Seems things are back to normal, at least according to Slack’s internal monitors. Still. we’ll see if we can get more information about what’s been making the chat service unreliable of late. Here’s what Slack has to say,
Things should be back to normal now. Thanks for your patience, and we’re extremely sorry for the disruption to your day. Our team is continuing to investigate this issue to ensure it doesn’t happen again.
