(Reuters) – Microsoft said late on Monday that its latest change is likely to cause significant disruptions, affecting users’ access to multiple Microsoft 365 services, including Outlook.com and Microsoft Teams.
The Windows and Office software developer said he did not “notice an increase in successful connections” even after he rolled back the change to mitigate the impact.
“A moment ago nothing was working, then I switched to files in Teams and it was working, and now nothing is working. Well, I think now I have an excuse for not working and watching TV,” one Twitter user tweeted.
“We are following steps to mitigate this issue. In parallel, we are redirecting traffic to alternative systems to provide more convenience for affected users,” Microsoft said in its status page, without specifying the number of users affected.
Several other Twitter users complained that the blackout meant they could miss their job interviews and college appointments deadlines.
