Google repairs outages affecting Youtube, Google services

Google Cloud outage hits YouTube, Gmail and other sites

A significant outage with Google Cloud Services Sunday had widespread impacts that included right here on SFist - there were some scary moments there - but the most noticeable impacts for users were probably on Snapchat, YouTube, and Nest.

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

Aside from YouTube and Gmail, users reported having issues with G Suite, which includes more than a dozen Google services, like Hangouts, Drive, Docs, Sheets and Voice.

The Google Cloud provides support for apps like YouTube and Snapchat, meaning that tonight's outage is mostly attached to this other ongoing issue.

This outage is also reflected on the Google Cloud outage map on DownDetector.com, where you can see the network outages affecting the eastern U.S.as well as something going on in San Francisco. But it was services like YouTube and Snapchat, which are also powered through Google, that really had the internet losing its collective mind. "This detailed report will contain information regarding SLA credits." the company issued in a statement after resolving the issue.

What's more, the outage even extended to some of Google's Nest smart home devices that rely on Google Cloud for some functions. This essentially meant that because of a cloud storage outage, people were prevented from getting inside their homes, using their AC, and monitoring their babies.

Earlier in the day, social media users complained of trouble loading a slew of popular websites and apps. Unlike many other news organizations, we have not put up a paywall.

Google suffered an outage across various cloud platforms yesterday, which caused users to experience reduced performance and intermittent errors.
