Microsoft’s online services, including Xbox Live, Outlook.com, Hotmail, Office 365, the Windows Store, OneDrive, and more, are back online after being hit with a nationwide outage on Tuesday afternoon.
“Some people may have experienced difficulties logging in to some services. All services have been fully restored,” says a Microsoft spokesperson.
It was the second Microsoft outage in March, after services went out for an hour in a similar fashion.
In the meantime, don’t stress if you couldn’t get into your Microsoft accounts or software right now: It was down for everyone, not just you.
