We'd like to confirm that the issue has been resolved. To launch the App, you may need to shut it down or "kill" it via system tools. On Mac it can be done via Activity Monitor utility. On Windows you will need to open Task Manager, find Upwork under Processes tab, select, click End task.

yes, this seems like a software issue, tried to find another solutions but nothing, so had to post here.

the Upwork Desktop App does not load anymore. I did the update yesterday, it worked, today it doesnt. It stays with the "loading icon" (see picture)
What do I do? Uninstall and reinstall does not work.
I need to work so it would be good to hear from you fast.

I'm having some issues with your desktop app for windows 10 version 2004, since this morning the app stock at loading and nothing happens, and it is stuck for about more than an hour as you can see on the screen capture.
Could you please assist me to solve this issue?

Same thing happened to me today after upgrading to windows 2004, i uninstall and tried to reinstall the app but it just doesn't load

I can't log in via the desktop app, as it is stuck at loading. My google login is already disabled as I always logged in with email/password.
I could use the app fine 5 hours ago.

I was asked to update the desktop app for Mac today, and now when I try to open the app it just keeps on loading forever. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling the app but the issue remains. Anyone else with the same issue?

Same thing here... I'm waiting for the fix but my shift is not finished, so it is URGENT.

Can you guys try to contact the support? I did it but Agent Fred said he would connect me to freelancer support and I'm hanging on chat for about 10 minutes without any response.

I have downloaded the UpWork desktop app on my computer. It has me agree to the terms and when I click "accept" it looks like its launching the app. The only problem is, it stays on the "Loading Upwork v.188.8.131.52" screen and I get the spinning wheel of doom FOREVER. It never moves past this step. I have tried force stopping, I have tried restarting my computer, I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling many times (and yes, I deleted ALL UpWork related things on my computer first).
I need help! I have a newer Mac and just downloaded the most recent system update.

Same issue on a Linux machine.
Logs state issues with the files hosted on AWS for Upwork.
