Some Xbox Live services are down — You are not alone!
Some gamers on social media are complaining that they are not able to access Social and Gaming service due to the unavailability of Xbox Live service — The Xbox Live Status also shows the Social and Gaming service is facing outage and may cause errors while recording, streaming gameplay and matchmaking.
Microsoft is aware of the problem and working on fixing the issue.
Our engineers are still hard at work on issues affecting social features on Xbox Live. Thanks for hanging in there! https://t.co/99xfLMWcZW

While visiting the Xbox live status website, the Social and Gaming service has been marked with Limited Service status.
This is not the first time when Xbox Live has some of its services down. In February 2016, the purchase and content Usage and Xbox Live core services were offline for almost one week. The gaming service was also under attack by hackers when NWH hackers conducted DDoS attacks on the Xbox servers forcing it to stay offline worldwide.
