In case the server is down due to any reasons, you cannot do much except wait until the services are back online.
2. Check Your Internet Connection
If your connection has any issues like poor or unstable connectivity, then you might experience a multiplayer not working issue. If possible, use any other wifi connection or use a wired connection instead of Wi-Fi for a more stable and reliable connection.
