Microsoft’s cloud services are down again [Update: Fixed]

This is the second outage in the last few weeks

Xbox Series X

Update 02/04/2021 6:40pm ET: Microsoft reports that its cloud services should be up and running.

Microsoft’s cloud services are once again down, according to a recent Azure Support Twitter message.

As it stands, the list of affected services is lengthy and includes Office 365, Xbox Live, OneDrive, Azure, Skype and Bing. That said, I was able to sign in to the Xbox network (RIP Xbox Live) fine, though some features might be inaccessible given that Xbox’s status page also notes issues.

The last time Microsoft’s services suffered from an outage was in early March. This story will be updated when Microsoft’s cloud services are restored.
