You may have noticed issues loading Slack this morning, but you are not alone. Starting around 8:00 AM PT., the spikes in the Down Detector show that the app is experiencing problems across the board.
This was later confirmed on Slack on Twitter, saying “We’re looking into an issue affecting threads and channels…”, but no fix has been announced at this time. The issue seems to have since been resolved, and Slack announced it on Twitter.
Slack tends to be very quick to fix these issues, and a quick tour of Twitter seems to have people regaining access to their threads and channels. We will continue to update this post as more information comes from the Slack team.
Of course, there may be issues with Slack other than loading threads and channels. Other common issues with Slack include notification management issues, audio issues, or searching for specific messages.
