(Reuters) – Microsoft Corp. (NASDAQ 🙂 announced Thursday that an issue with its Microsoft 365 services and features, including the workspace messaging app Teams and Azure, was fixed after many users were unable to access them.

“We have confirmed that the underlying DNS failure has been fixed. We are currently reviewing the restoration of Microsoft 365 downstream services,” said a tweet at https://twitter.com/MSFT365Status/status/1377771854237069316.

The Domain Name System (DNS) is practically an address book on the Internet that computers can use to match website addresses with the correct server.

Previously, the Downdetector outage tracking website had reported over 8,000 incidents by people reporting issues with their widely used team messaging app for the workplace.

Downdetector only tracks outages by gathering status reports from a number of sources, including user-submitted errors on its platform. The failure can affect a large number of users.
