Xbox Live Down: Server Status latest as Microsoft confirms party chat issues
Xbox Live servers appear to be having some technical difficulty this evening as Xbox One gamers struggle to access key online services across the globe.
In the last few minutes, there's been a spike of reports suggesting issues with Online gaming and various Xbox live functions.
These issues were confirmed by Microsoft's own support twitter account who told users:
"We are aware that users are experiencing issues with matchmaking, Party Chat, and Looking For Groups. Our engineers are working on fixing this now. We will keep you posted here when we have updates!"
into core services on Microsoft platforms.
There's also been a spike of Xbox Live reports on the Independent outage monitor Down Detector, with reports close to 2000 from the UK site alone. But that's only based on live complaints, and not the many more who likely have not complained online.
The Down Detector outage map says the problems are mainly hitting users in the UK, Europe and right across the United States.
At the time of writing, there's no word on what might be wrong with the Xbox Live servers online service.
