Service Interruptions Hit GoToMeeting, Microsoft Teams

Tech providers are already seeing strain on their systems.

Just when workers needed them, two remote working tools experienced service interruptions on Monday. GoToMeeting and Microsoft Teams both suffered from errors and problems, according to reports and company-provided status updates.

GoToMeeting posted on its status website that “customers may be experiencing errors” on Monday morning. A few hours later, the service was running normally. Meanwhile European customers of Microsoft Teams were hit with a messaging-related problem, according to reports at VentureBeat and TechCrunch. “We’re investigating the issue,” said Microsoft, in a social media post, as some U.S. workers also reported errors when attempting to use Teams.

 As the number of global COVID-19 cases grows, videoconferencing is being put to the test, with more advisors and clients hunkering down during the coronavirus pandemic.
