Gmail, YouTube services restored after global outage
Google is facing an outage for some users in India and several other countries as most of its services and apps have gone down. Google Contacts, Docs, Drive, Gmail, YouTube, and more are currently not working, prompting messages of error in India and more countries, including in Europe and the US. It should be noted that YouTube and other services are working fine if you open them in incognito mode. YouTube recently faced a major outage for a couple of hours in early last month, and it appears that the video streaming platform is again the most hit in the outage.
- A similar outage was experienced on the platform last month when the users had experienced an issue with the video streaming platform.
- While some Twitter users expressed sadness over YouTube being down, others took the moment as an opportunity to share jokes and memes.
- The outage triggered several social media users to share memes on the YouTube outage which lead to the hashtag of ‘YouTubeDown’ trending on Twitter.
- The cause of the outage is still unclear.
- All the services from Alphabet Inc, including YouTube, Gmail, Google Drive and Gmeet, which were down for thousands of users across the globe, have now been restored.
