Microsoft Teams, Outlook and several other online services were reportedly down a while ago in India.
Microsoft’s entire online service platform was unavailable for a while in the late hours of January 25, 2023. Several businesses and users complained of key Microsoft services such as MS Teams, Outlook, Azure, SharePoint, and more not available. Microsoft in an update confirmed that the outage affected all the Microsoft 365 services and was largely due to a potential networking issue. At the time, the company said it was “reviewing telemetry to determine the next troubleshooting steps.”
“Any user serviced by the affected infrastructure may be unable to access multiple Microsoft 365 services,” said the page. However, based on the data from Downdetector and several people who rely on Microsoft 365 services, it seems that the issue has been addressed and all the services are running as expected. However, the outage that latest about an hour gave many people a chance to flock over to Twitter and post some hilarious memes, some of which have got us cracking.
