YouTube and Google services interrupted by network congestion

Google Cloud outage hits YouTube, Gmail and other sites

Odds are that if you're having trouble connecting to a site or service right now, it's related to this massive, ongoing outage.

Google is aware of the issue and has been providing updates on its Google Cloud status dashboard.

Early on Monday morning, Google released a statement confirming that is was experiencing high levels of "network congestion" affecting multiple services.

'Users may see slow performance or intermittent errors.

However, other Google services experiencing connectivity problems elsewhere in the world, including YouTube, were still accessible in tests conducted by iTnews and other users. "We believe we have identified the root cause of the congestion and expect to return to normal service shortly", the company said.

Here are some of the best tweets from the Great Google Cloud Outage of June 2019. In addition to powering its own services, other companies such as Snapchat and Uber, rely on Google's infrastructure to provide the backend for their apps and platforms.

Google first reported the problem at 12:25 p.m. PT on Sunday.

The sound of millions of cat videos being suddenly silenced reverberated across the internet, and #YouTubeDOWN was a trending topic on Twitter.

Down Detector's live maps indicate the issue seems to be mostly concentrated to the east coast of the United States, with some reports it may also be affecting eastern Europe, though there are further (and fewer) reports that other areas could also be affected.
