SAN FRANCISCO — Slack, a major communications company used by businesses across the world, is reporting widespread outages, according to the company’s website.
“Some customers may be able to connect, but may also experience degraded performance. We’re continuing to work to resolve the issue,” the company recently stated at 12 p.m. on Jan. 4.
The outage involves all Slack functions, including connection, logging in, sending messages, making calls and more.
