Several Microsoft services, including the Teams collaborative work tool or Outlook messaging, were unavailable worldwide this Wednesday morning due to outages still under investigation, the American group said on Twitter.
"We are investigating issues that affect multiple Microsoft 365 services," one of Microsoft's service accounts wrote on Twitter at 8:31 a.m.
And on the social network, many users around the world complained that they could not access their usual tools.
“I have an assignment due in half an hour on Teams and the servers are not working in India.
Please do something,” one user wrote.
On the specialized site Downdetector, incidents were reported in the United States and Europe for several other services belonging to Microsoft, from the Xbox Live gaming platform to the LinkedIn social network.
Contacted, the group did not respond to requests from AFP on Wednesday.
