Zoom is currently experiencing a service outage [Updated]

Zoom, whose popularity and usage has soared since the COVID-19 pandemic hit, is currently experiencing a service outage. Zoom users are reporting that they are unable to start new Zoom meetings or join existing ones. The company has already updated its service status page to confirm a "partial outage" with Zoom meetings and video webinars.

Zoom users first started reporting the issue around 5:00 AM PDT, with Zoom acknowledging the outage around 5:51 AM PDT. The company posted an update on 6:16 PDT confirming that it is "continuing to work on a fix for this issue."

Incidentally, the service outage has occurred on the first day of school for many students in the United States. As schools in the country are still closed due to the pandemic, schools have switched to hosting online classes.

The service outage does not seem to affect Zoom users across the globe as many are still able to join existing or create new video meetings.
