Is Zoom Down? This is what we know so far

Refresh

Warnings of a Zoom outage started around 8 a.m. PDT / 12 noon EDT / 3 p.m. BST, with a significant spike in reports observed on the DownDetector tracking site.

Zoom was quick to respond and tweet in general Twitter account (opens in new tab) that it was aware of the issues and that the technical team is “investigating the matter”.

Zoom now says it thinks it will get to the bottom of the problem.

A message on the status page (opens in new tab) notes: “We’ve identified the issue when launching and joining meetings. We’ll continue to investigate and provide updates as we receive them.”

Somewhat confusingly, Zoom now suggests that the issue has been resolved.

Company status page (opens in new tab) now notes that Zoom Meetings is “operational” – but our own tests here failed to connect or initiate a call.

There’s also no official confirmation on the company’s Twitter account, so we’ll be keeping an eye out for more details if and when they’re revealed…

Well – that’s that!

With that confirmation from Zoom that everything is indeed back to normal now, all you have to do is say you stayed with us, and hopefully the rest of your day will go well!
