If you’re currently having an issue with friend services on Xbox Live, you aren’t alone. Microsoft is reporting a slight outage within its Xbox Live service on the Xbox One platform. Apparently there is no word that Xbox 360 units are being affected and the incident appears to be isolated to the latest generation platform.
The Xbox team reported less than half an hour ago that users are indeed having an issue with what is known as the “Social and Gaming” component of Xbox Live. Reports from users include “difficulties managing their friends list”. Microsoft has stated that their team is working on the issue and will get the problem resolved as soon as possible.
Microsoft promises to update us on the issue shortly, so we will be sure to let you know when service has been fully restored or if there are any other announcements.
Keep tabs on the situation by heading to Microsoft's status page for more info. Are you being affected by the current service outage?
UPDATE: Microsoft has reported that all Xbox Live services are back up and running.
