Workplace chat app Slack experienced an outage this morning, causing messages to fail to send on the platform. Reports of the issue surfaced around 5 AM ET, prompting users to report trouble with sending messages in Slack. The service’s status dashboard acknowledged the problem at 5:35 AM ET and stated that they were investigating the issue. The status was elevated to an “outage” at 5:57 AM ET, affecting various actions in Slack, including message sending and workflows.

However, as of 6:13 AM ET, Slack reported that the issues had been resolved. Users were advised to reload their apps to see the restoration. The outage impacted the browser-based service as well as the desktop and mobile apps. While some messages got through when sent via the mobile apps, the results were inconsistent.
