After almost an hour of global outage, YouTube services were restored on Wednesday morning.
Google-owned YouTube on Wednesday experienced a global outage for about 45 minutes , with access issues into YouTube TV and YouTube Music services.
Following the restoration of services, the YouTube team took to Twitter to thank the users for their patience.
“We’re back! Thanks for all of your patience. If you continue to experience issues, please let us know,” Team YouTube tweeted.
During the outage period, YouTube experienced technical glitches. When users tried to access YouTube videos, they encountered error messages.
In addition, visiting YouTube.com produced a blank screen with only the YouTube logo displayed. Several users complained of seeing ‘500 Internal Server Error’ and ‘503 Network Error’ messages popping up on their screens.
Responding to the reports of error, Team YouTube tweeted, “Thanks for your reports about YouTube, YouTube TV and YouTube Music access issues. We’re working on resolving this and will let you know once fixed. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and will keep you updated”.
YouTube did not say what caused the outage.
YouTube users flocked to Twitter on Wednesday to complain about the issue, with the hashtag #YouTubeDOWN.
