New updates are being added at the bottom of this story…….

Original story (published on November 24, 2022) follows:

There are multiple tools designed to enhance collaboration between work teams. One of these tools is Slack.

The popularity of these types of tools increased exponentially with the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. After all, many companies had to migrate to remote work for quite some time.

Slack provides many useful tools and features that allow you to organize the backlog and tasks for team members. It also facilitates direct communication between them, the contribution of ideas and more.


However, currently some are unable to access Slack services because it is down and not working as a result of an outage.

Slack down or not working

Multiple reports indicate that there is an outage on the Slack servers. This means that users are unable to access their accounts and continue their work.


Bro what happened, whole slack is down. Can’t continue my important meeting. #slackdown

Looks like Slack does have problems tho based on their status page. Time to pull up the good ol’ Chime

Service outage monitoring platforms like Down Detector also reflect the increasing reports on the issue.
