Several users have reported that Xbox Live is experiencing problems today, not being able to log in to the service, contact friends or even join a party. The problems even affected multiplayer games, and seem to have started around 4:15 pm, Brasília time.
Microsoft issued a note saying it was aware of the problems, and confirmed that it is working to resolve them as soon as possible. The company reveals that the Microsoft 365 service, which brings together the main services of the Office suite in one subscription, is also experiencing problems, but it is not yet known what they would be.
