The Microsoft account service is unavailable right now. Try again later.



This a quick tip how to fix the error message "The Microsoft account service is unavailable right now. Try again later." that you may see while trying to install an app from Microsoft store on a Windows Phone, a Windows tablet, or a Windows computer.

This is an example of one of the most unhelpful error messages displayed by the Microsoft products, that baffles even their support technicians  : you might be advised to reset the password of your Microsoft account, or file a bug report, while the reason for this error could be much simpler: the date or time of your device could be wrong.

So, next time when you are unable to login to Windows store, check the date and time of your phone, tablet, or computer. If it's off by more than a couple of minutes, adjust it to the correct time  and chances are that after that this error will magically disappear.

Happy computing!
