A Skype outage on Monday is affecting users worldwide. When you try signing in, you’ll get stuck on a loading screen for a few minutes until it tells you that you can’t connect.
People were tweeting that they were experiencing issues as early as 3:30 a.m. ET, but people were still having difficulties as of 10 a.m.
Some messages in group chats aren’t being delivered, but for the most part, you can still send text chats to your contacts.
Web pages on the Skype Community are also loading with difficulties.
The company says it’s currently working to fix the problem and will update users soon. Until then, people are venting their grievances with #Skypedown.
Other tech companies have also faced outages recently. Facebook experienced a brief disruption on Friday, and Apple Music went down in late July. Twitter was also hit with an outage that lasted almost an hour last week, affecting users trying to access the website on their desktops.
