Because of the issue, gamers have not been able to login into the service across Xbox One, Xbox 360, and Windows which prevented them from loading digital games or games that work on an internet connection. The outage was first just a couple of hours back and the Xbox Support team had even posted a tweet acknowledging the issue and said that it was working to fix the issue; however, it isn't clear what is causing the problem.

It appears that certain users are facing issues with the Friends lists and Party Chat feature which may still be broken. Apart from the Live Party feature and Friends lists, the outage is also preventing users from launching video apps like Netflix and Hulu.

In the meantime, the company's Live Status page says that the services are back up now except for the Rocket League on Xbox One, which has been hit with an undefined issue.
