Since the last major failure of Microsoft, only a few weeks later, its growing cloud service network has fallen into trouble again. Windows Central Pointed out an Azure status tweet indicating a problem with the network, and reported that there were problems even when pulling up Bing. I can access some aspects of Xbox Live (sorry, Xbox network), but noticed that some features are not currently loaded, and its status page reports a known issue with some people logging in.
I will tell you more about the cause of the problem, but it is so common that it is impossible to access the multiple status pages of Azure and Office. The latest update comes from the Microsoft 365 Twitter account, which reports that engineers are investigating possible DNS issues. Before that, if you encounter all the problems from Teams to Office 365, you may just have to wait.
