[German]Microsoft’s Teams services are currently down (February 3, 2020, since 2.40 pm). The reason is an certificate issue, that blocks the access to the teams account.
It’s now the third outage since Januar 31, 2020 (on that day, Brexit has caused – or not – an outage of a british internet provider). And on Saturday February 1st, some other services has been affected (see screenshot below).
Now a German blog reader left a comment within my German blog, mentions that MS Teams is down.
Microsoft Teams is down.

The social media team from Microsoft 365 Status has confirmed that on Twitter and mentioned the reason:
We’ve determined that an authentication certificate has expired causing, users to have issues using the service. We’re developing a fix to apply a new certificate to the service which will remediate impact. Further updates can be found under TM202916 in the admin center.
