The last serious Microsoft Teams outage was on April 1, when a DNS issue impacted Teams and several Microsoft services including Azure and Xbox Live. Today’s outage wasn’t as bad, and we’re glad to see that Microsoft was pretty quick to issue a fix. If you’re still having issues with Microsoft Teams, make sure to restart the app to get it working again.
