Discord said on Tuesday that it “reversed” an issue that led to thousands of users reporting problems with the messaging platform.

More than 44,000 users have reported problems with Discord on Downdetector.com, a site that tracks outages by gathering status reports from various sources, including user-submitted errors on its platform.

Discord said the issue caused problems with messaging, logging in and accessing videos on its platform.

“With an eye on correction and recovery!” Discord status page he said.

Discord, which allows public and private groups to meet and chat via text, audio and video, has expanded from a gamers club to all types of communities, including sports fans, music groups and cryptocurrency investors.

Discord recently announced that its PlayStation Network (PSN) integration has been rolled out to users. With it, Discord users will be able to link their PSN accounts to display their PlayStation 4 or PlayStation 5 activities in the messaging app. The integration was first announced in May of last year, but it didn’t mention when users will be able to link their Sony console accounts to Discord. The messaging app already allows integration with other social and gaming services.

The messaging app already allows users to connect their Battle.net, Facebook, GitHub, Reddit, Spotify, Xbox Live and YouTube accounts. PSN integration is available on all platforms Discord is available on — Android, iOS, macOS, Linux, Windows and a web browser.
