Zoom DOWN: Server status latest, audio and video problems reported today

Zoom down reports are on the rise at the moment, with users reporting problems with video and audio output in meetings today.

Independent outage monitor Down Detector UK has registered a huge spike in Zoom down reports. Out of those affected some 70 per cent are having issues with Zoom’s video conferencing services.

While other Zoom users have also been affected by login problems.

According to the Down Detector outage map the Zoom issues are mainly affecting users in the UK, Europe and parts of the US.

Down Detector is an independent outage monitor which tracks social mentions to spot when popular services are taken offline.

As the Zoom issues hit people flocked to social networking site Twitter to report problems they were facing.

One tweeted: “@zoom_us are there problems ? We are having major issues on a meeting with no video link”.

And another posted: “@zoom_us Any fix for the lack of participant video? Blank screens on all devices and participant screens after the latest update”.

While one Zoom user wrote: “@zoom_us IM HAVING BIG PROBLEMS this morning with #zoom A meeting of 65 participants and we can’t see each other’s videos or hear anyone..please help”.

At the time of writing Down Detector UK has registered a peak of more than 2,000 Zoom down reports, with large-scale reports beginning from around 10am BST.

The official Zoom Twitter account is yet to comment on the reported issues the service is experiencing today.

The Zoom Server Status page says the majority of its services such as Zoom Meetings and Zoom Chat are operational.

But it does note that the Zoom website’s Dashboard & Reporting functionality is experiencing a “degraded performance”.
