Microsoft Outage Affects Skype, OneDrive, Office 365 And More

Users across the UK, Europe, Japan and the U.S. are all reporting issues as Microsoft struggles to fix an issue with its video messaging service. As for Xbox Live, the Xbox Live Status page now says that users on all platforms could encounter problems when trying to sign in, create an account and more.

Hotmail users around the world have been unable to access their email accounts after an outage struck Microsoft, the free service's owner.

Microsoft's Twitter accounts were being flooded with users desperate for information - with some saying their usual business operations were being damaged by the glitch. "We hope to restore the service as soon, as possible!"

In terms of locations, the outages appear to be centred around the UK, Europe and the East coast of America.

Some people who were experiencing problems were later able to log in again though Microsoft had yet to issue a formal statement. One MSA sign-in authenticates users for multiple applications.

Some users were tweeting about residual issues late Tuesday morning.

"We're aware of the issue and working to resolve, please bear with us", the company said.
