Discord is currently down due to a major outage

Discord is down! The popular app that lets you chat with friends and others in games is currently experiencing an outage. Some can’t join calls or participate in text chats, others can’t even launch the app, which means everyone’s favorite means of communication may be inaccessible for a while. According to the official Discord Twitter profile, Discord is aware of a popular API. breakdown.

  • Update 1: The current message on Discord says it’s slowly coming back.
  • Update 2: Some of us were able to log in.
  • Update 3: More than half of users were able to connect to Discord and it works normally.

The database is healthy again and our internal error rate has dropped to nominal levels. We are starting to increase the connection rate to limit to allow users to reconnect.
