Discord users were left in the cold on Wednesday when one of the best messaging apps suddenly became unusable. It turns out a massive outage had kept many users from logging in.
The outage began sometime before noon Pacific time. Since then, Discord kept users abreast of any updates on Twitter and its status page, saying earlier that it identified and was working to fix the problems.
As of 2:19 p.m. PT, an update was posted to Twitter informing users that the chat app should be back up and users should be able to log in.

Fortunately, the outage only lasted for a couple of hours, unlike some of the significant outages we've seen in recent months from Facebook and Amazon Web Services. With any luck, Discord can get to the bottom of what went wrong so it can prevent it from happening again.
