Zoom down: Thousands left unable to make video calls as service hit by outage

If you’re currently trying to get on a Zoom call without any luck, you’re not alone.

Thousands of people are being affected by a current Zoom outage ocurring on a day when many have been forced to work from home.

The video calling app is currently down and not working, with reports coming in from across the UK.

According to the website DownDetector, Zoom went offline at around 3.15pm BST with problems ongoing.

The majority of those affected appear to be in London, but other cities around the UK are also reporting problems.

Users in the United States are also reportedly affected.

Naturally, plenty of users flocked to Twitter to confirm the news.
