Spotify and Discord come back online after outages

If you can’t connect to Spotify or Discord, then no, it’s not just you or your internet connection. Both services acknowledged the problems on Tuesday afternoon. However, this time the culprit does not appear to be a massive DNS or Amazon Web Services (AWS) issue. Of course, Apple’s event servers are still operational and we haven’t lost access to security cameras or robot vacuums, but the coincidence is still unusual.

According to Discord, after they restarted their streaming service to fix an issue, a new issue caused their API to crash, and about 30 minutes ago they were still investigating. The Spotify Status account tweeted at 1:22 p.m. ET that “we’re looking into that” but didn’t provide any further details on what’s going on.

Starting at 2:39 p.m. ET, Spotify status tweeted that things are much better, and we’ve seen reports that most people are back online. Meanwhile, Discord’s status page notes that “work has begun to restore service.” So if you haven’t logged back in yet, you may soon be.

Updated March 8, 2:53 p.m. ET: Added latest updates on Discord and Spotify coming back online.
