Thousands of users of Microsoft Teams, Outlook and Azure were affected by an outage on Wednesday in India, a report by news agency Reuters said.

Microsoft has reportedly said it has “identified a potential networking issue” and is troubleshooting a fix to bring services across Teams, Outlook and Azure back online.

Downdetector also added that a majority of Teams users (63 per cent) were impacted by the disruption while 27 per cent users reported of issues with server connection and 11 per cent reported having issues with the website. Downdetector site tracks outages by collating status reports from sources including user-submitted errors on its platform.
