YouTube outage across the globe

Video site YouTube experiencing a worldwide outage YouTube experiencing "access issues" in apparent global outage
Oscar Goodwin | 19 October, 2018, 13:09

However, in 2018 alone, the Google-owned video service has suffered outage four times already.

YouTube is used by billions of users around the globe on a daily basis and is backed by Google's robust digital infrastructure.

Also, the outage affects not only YouTube but also its spinoff services YouTube TV and YouTube Music Access, which are not available in India yet. "We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and will keep you updated", YouTube tweeted.

After resolving the issue, YouTube appreciated viewers' patience and thanked them for the same.

YouTube experienced a major, but brief, outage late Tuesday. Users across the world started to notice that the video service's sites and mobile apps were down at around 9:20 PM ET, and everything remained inaccessible more than an hour later. But as the company has said, it is working on restoring the services back again, which has become a necessity in the lives of many.

Likewise, with all Google-operated administrations, genuine downtime for YouTube is really uncommon. While YouTube is working to bring your favorite videos back online, take a breather outside and life will be back to normal shortly!

Some users were met by an "internal service error" message.

A little over an hour later, the issue has been resolved.
