A Google Cloud outage breaks Snapchat, YouTube, Gmail

A Google Cloud outage breaks Snapchat, YouTube, Gmail

Several users in the United States and Europe had problems accessing YouTube and Gmail while other applications that rely on Google Cloud such as Discord, Snapchat and Video are affected as well.

Google says that the incident began at 12:25 PM US Pacific Time, which translates to 3:25 AM local time.

The outage, which Google blamed on network congestion, lasted for five hours and disrupted not only Google-owned YouTube and Gmail, but popular applications like Shopify and popular social media platforms Snapchat and Discord, the company said.

The effects of this outage are causing users to be unable to connect to Snapchat, while other are connecting fine.

It appears Europe and U.S. are most affected, but DownDetector confirms the issue appears to be largely resolved.

Another statement from Google adds: "We are investigating an issue with Google Compute Engine".

As of 4:56pm, Google said the issue had been resolved, and that it would conduct an internal investigation in order to make appropriate improvements to its system.

However, the Google Cloud outage also affected third-party apps and services that use Google Cloud space for hosting.

Cord Cutters News is reaching out to Google for comment and will update this story as we learn more.

At one point, the entire G Suite Dashboard lit red with nearly every service facing an outage showing just how severe the issue was.

The outage likely wasn't as disruptive as it would've been had it occurred on a weekday, but many users still took to Twitter to express frustration over the issue.

Original report continues: A spokesperson said, in response to queries, that users may see slow performance or intermittent errors.
