Yesterday many Google services suffered a major outage, luckily the issue has now been fixed and these services have been restored.
The issues affected YouTube, Gmail, Nest and many other services, also third party companies like Snapchat.
The main issue was to do with Google’s Cloud service and this affected other third party apps and services that use Google Cloud as well as Google’s own apps and services.
The problem mainly occurred in the US, although some users in Europe were affected, I personally experienced this with our Nest services not working last night.
Google are now looking into exactly what caused the problem, they did give a statement to The Verge which said “We sincerely apologize to those that were impacted by today’s issues.”
