Discord suffered a widespread outage in January, and something similar appears to be happening again, except for a much shorter duration.

“The connection should now be fully restored,” company says. “If you still see the problem, please restart your client.”
Back in January, it took a few hours for Discord to be back in service after we were all locked down by an “API outage” and minor issues with the database cluster. After the issue was resolved, the company said it was “prioritizing the repair of potential failures that occurred.”
Today’s brief outage is due to “general API and session issues” and may not be related to the January outage — Discord says it “rolled back” today’s issue, suggesting that its update ended up breaking things and needed to be undone.
