YouTube is Down Temporarily Due To Access Issues
YouTube, the popular website across the world, had experienced an outage on Tuesday night around 9 p.m. ET. It was down for almost 2 hours. Google-owned Support Company had detailed the reasons for the outage.
Users who were on YouTube to access videos were astonished to see the YouTube Internal 500 error messages (including 503 error messages). Social Media was buzzing with the questions, “Why YouTube is not working worldwide?”. However, the services were restored after an hour and a half around 10:30 p.m. ET.
To answer the questions of the users, YouTube has taken up Twitter explaining what problems have occurred with the Google Video Service that it led to the outage. They said that they were resolving the issue, and let the public know once it is fixed. They apologized for the inconvenience and promised to stay updated with the latest news.
In the similar tweet, they also thanked the users for providing reports about YouTube, YouTube TV and YouTube Music access issues. No further information has been provided on the cause of the outage and how long it would last.
US users have complained that “Still the search would work, but the videos don’t get displayed, Video would appear when clicked, but it doesn’t take it back to the main page when returned. So one is stuck with the broken video.”
Finally, after resolving the issue, Team YouTube has posted, “We’re back! Thanks for all of your patience. If you continue to experience issues, please let us know.”
