- Users have reported that Slack can not be used in a variety of countries that span from Europe to Asia.
- Issues include connectivity problems, lagging transfer speeds, and even the inability to connect to the servers entirely.
- Both the Slack application, the web app, and mobile applications have been affected by issues.
If you’re using Slack for work, or as a way to communicate, it seems that app is currently experiencing issues. In the past hours, many Slack users reported that the servers were down, leaving them unable to use the platform.
There have been over 500 reports on Downdetector, and many users complained that they are not able to send messages, receive replies or documents from others, or even access the platform, at all.
Is Slack down for everybody?
From what information we could gather by checking the DownDetector comments section, it seems that the connection problems are mostly appearing in the western part of Europe, but users in Poland, India, and other countries have experienced issues as well. The official Slack status also says that users are having issues connecting to Slack.
The level at which users are affected doesn’t seem to vary only geographically but also in the exact effects that were reported.
Some people can’t log in to their accounts on any platform, others report lagging on iOS, and some experience lagging in the web application as well, with sluggish file transfer speeds and big loading times.
What can I do about this issue?
Considering that is mostly a server-side issue, there is not much that you can try in order to resolve this problem.
What is recommended is that you refresh the X Slack webpage throughout the day to check for any updates on the situation from the team itself.
