It has only been a few weeks since the last big Microsoft crash, and once again, its growing network of managed cloud services is in trouble. Windows Central pointed out a tweet about Azure status indicating problems on the network, and reported that they were having problems even getting Bing back. I was able to access some aspects of Xbox Live – sorry, the Xbox Network – but noticed that some features were not loading at the moment, and his status page reports known connection issues for some people.
I would tell you more about the cause of the problem, but it is so prevalent that several of the status pages for Azure and Office are inaccessible. The most recent update comes from the Microsoft 365 Twitter account, which says engineers are investigating a possible DNS issue. Until then, if you’re having trouble with everything from Teams to Office 365, you might have to wait.
