It looks like Xbox Live is having issues again, as Xbox Live inactivity reports surfaced again this May 7th, making this the second day in a row that Xbox Live is experiencing issues!! It’s been just under 24 hours since the network was down for over half a day yesterday, affecting online gaming, cloud gaming and more!

Update (May 8, 3:28 p.m. ET): Microsoft has announced that Xbox Live issues are happening again, but this time it’s the EU that’s affected (for now). You can keep an eye out for server status updates for May 8 here.

Update #3: Microsoft announced that everything was working as expected!

Update #2 (May 7, 11:27 p.m. ET): Issues are still ongoing, though Microsoft said some users might notice some improvements with a reboot as a recommendation, otherwise they’re still working on a full restore.

Update: Microsoft says they are still working on the issues and players should see improvements with launching games by restarting their Xbox consoles.

As for the official Xbox status page, it currently shows that “Store & subscriptions”, “Cloud gaming & remote play”, “Games & games” have issues and are labeled as “limited”.

Earlier today (at or around 12:00 p.m. ET), Xbox Live servers went down, and it started with entertainment apps like Netflix, Hulu, and others:
