You can track the current status of Xbox Live through the respective support page, but you may face some trouble doing that as well, according to Microsoft. The company is working to address all of these issues. We will update this article with more information as it comes.

Update: Microsoft's Brad Rossetti has confirmed that the service change has been rolled back, and your Xbox One should be usable again. You'll need to reboot your console to verify that it's up and running.
