Xbox Live Issues Reported On Xbox One Earlier Today
Microsoft's Xbox Live Network seems to have run into some minor issues. According to numerous users, they have noted some unusual activity relating to sending and receiving in-game invites on the Xbox One Console.
GameSpot first reported the issue when several users noticed the problem in the wee hours of April 18. Luckily the guys at Microsoft has already fixed the issue and reportedly restored all of the services for Xbox Live.
Apparently, the Redmond-based tech company has not released any information on the cause of the problem. Microsoft for their part assured many of its customers that it is doing its best to resolve the issue.
Throughout the day, Xbox Support updated its users via their official Twitter handle. Earlier today, the support team acknowledged that they were aware of the problem. The team later tweeted that everything is back to normal (you can check out the tweets below).
We're seeing reports of issues with party and game invites for some customers. Thank you for your patience while our teams investigate!

Last month Xbox Live encountered an identical situation when its services experienced some issues. On March 21, several reports have surfaced that Live users were having trouble with signing in and purchasing content.
Microsoft's support team was able to fully resolve the problem two days after it first appeared on several Live servers.
Notably, sign-in issues are especially problematic because it cuts off users from the Xbox Live. That means that members of the service are deprived of the ability to play many games.
Upon checking some members are apparently still having the same sign in issue. Hopefully, everything gets sorted out as early as possible.
