Zoom is down: the company says it is still investigating these widespread outages

Zoom a video conferencing app used by almost every other person these days, has been experiencing widespread outages throughout the world. The complaints are majorly arising from the USA and Europe.

This is possibly the worst possible time for this to happen as zoom saw a massive surge in the users, which is a no-brainer considering the pandemic. Many schools and colleges are also using the app, and these outages might have caused a problem for them.

DownDetector shows outages in North America and some parts of Europe, while Zoom’s own status page reports problems with meetings and webinars while other services seem to be working fine.

The company grew from 10 million users in December to more than 300 million daily meeting participants today. These kinds of outages on a primary service like this could have many after-effects, especially with other video conferencing services trying to make their share of a name in the market.

“We have identified the issue causing users to be unable to authenticate to the Zoom website (zoom.us) and unable to start and join Zoom Meetings and Webinars, and we are working on a fix for this issue,” Zoom said. The issue is not yet fixed, as they said they are still working on it.
