February saw two separate issues with the Microsoft Teams collaboration app. First, on Feb. 4, an issue prevented some North American users from joining meetings. By the afternoon that same day, Microsoft issued a statement to say “we resolved the short interruption that a subset of customers in North America may have experienced connecting to meetings or live events.”
