YouTube is encountering a noteworthy blackout.
Though Google was silent on the issue, YouTube itself acknowledged the problem, which affected not only the main YouTube service but also YouTube TV and YouTube Music, on Twitter and assured that it would be resolved soon. Similar to the website, the YouTube app showed blank areas on the homescreen, while navigating to the "trending", "subscriptions" and "library" tabs returned error messages.
An outage for YouTube of this scale affects hundreds of millions of its users, if not the entire billion-strong community. "If you continue to experience issues, please let us know", the company said in a post to its official Twitter account.
The most infamous YouTube outage took place a decade ago when a Pakistan ISP accidentally took down the video site around the world for several hours.
