The number of reports was in the hundreds as of 5:09 pm, so it doesn't appear issues are as widespread as past outages so far. The Microsoft 365 status page hasn't been updated to reflect any ongoing problems either. We'll update this post with more information should problems continue to spread, or if Microsoft provides an update.
For now, chime in in the comments and let us know if you've experienced any problems using Office 365 services today.

"Microsoft Windows Central" is imminent.
