Slack is experiencing some major issues on Thursday. On The Verge’s Slack, I’m finding that some posts just won’t send in both channels and threads, and a few of my colleagues are reporting similar issues. But the issues are somewhat inconsistent; I’m still seeing some posts come in.
We’re not the only ones. More than 10,000 users have reported issues on Downdetector, and I’m seeing a bunch of posts about Slack problems on X, the platform formerly known as Twitter.
At 12:37PM ET, the company’s status page confirmed there are issues. “Some customers are encountering issue loading pages in Slack,” the company wrote. “We’re actively looking into this, and we’ll report back as more information becomes available.”
“Our teams are aware and are investigating the issue,” Slack spokesperson Courtney Baldasare said in a statement to The Verge. “For the latest updates, please keep an eye on @slackstatus and status.slack.com.”
