Discord is down, it’s not just you

The group chat platform Discord suffered a widespread API issue today, beginning just before noon PT. That means that if you’re a gamer/crypto bro/someone else who just likes Discord, you won’t be able to upload that picture of your dog in the #pets channel of your podcast’s sever.

“We have identified the underlying issue with the API outage but are dealing with a secondary issue on one of our database clusters. We have our entire on-call response team online and responding to the issue,” the platform posted . As of now, about 45 minutes after the site went down, Discord said that its database is healthy again and is slowly allowing users to reconnect, but you might still not be able to log in right away, and will likely see an error message.
