Zoom says it’s having an outage. Perfect timing to help you avoid your Monday morning meeting.

The video calling giant said it’s “received reports of users being unable to visit the Zoom website (zoom.us) and unable to start and join Zoom Meetings and Webinars.”

“We are currently investigating and will provide updates as we have them,” according to Zoom’s status page.

The outage started at 8:51am ET, the company said.

Not everyone is affected, it seems. Some users are reporting that their Zoom calls are working fine. Others say they cannot get into their regularly scheduled Zoom meetings.

Since the company’s massive spike in users, thanks to everyone working from home during the pandemic, Zoom has claimed some 300 million daily meeting participants.

Zoom didn’t immediately comment on the cause of today’s outage, but a spokesperson apologized for the downtime. We’ll have more as we get it. In the meantime, go get yourself another coffee. You’ve earned it.
