YouTube resumes service after worldwide outage

Google’s streaming service YouTube was down across the world, leaving users unable to access the popular video-sharing site and triggering social media outrage worldwide.

The service was back up after 90-minutes [approx.], although YouTube did not explain what caused the outage.

Earlier, when users tried to access, they were greeted with a blank page that showed no videos. On the app, an error message read, “There was a problem with the network [503].”

YouTube acknowledged the outage on Twitter and said it was working to fix the problem.

A map on DownDetector, which tracks status information and outages for various types of services in real time, showed that users in the United States, Brazil, Japan, parts of Australia, Southeast Asia, and Western Europe were affected.
