In a statement Microsoft Corp said, it has mitigated an issue with its Microsoft 365 services and features, including workplace messaging app Teams and Azure.
The development comes in the wake of many users complaining that they were unable to access Microsoft 365 services.
“We have confirmed that the underlying DNS outage has been mitigated. Currently we’re validating the recovery of the downstream Microsoft 365 services,” said Microsoft in a tweet.
Domain Name System (DNS) is effectively an address book of the internet which enables computers to match website addresses with the correct server.
According to Downdetector, an outage tracking website, more than 8,000 people reported issues with Microsoft’s widely used Teams workplace messaging app.
