NEW YORK– Google is stating users of YouTube and other services are seeing errors or slow performance due to high levels of network blockages in the eastern United States.
YouTube, Google Cloud and G Suite services are impacted, but Google stated it thinks it has actually recognized the cause of the congestion and anticipates to go back to normal service shortly. The company initially identified the problem on its Google Cloud status dashboard at 3: 25 p.m. Eastern time.
The noise of millions of feline videos being suddenly silenced resounded across the web, and #YouTubeDOWN was a trending topic on Twitter.
If YouTube isn’t loading for you or you’re experiencing mistake messages, we’re working to repair it!
