YouTube is back online after a brief outage

YouTube, owned by Alphabet Inc., announced that it has resolved the outage that had interrupted various functionalities for thousands of its users across the online video sharing and social media network on Tuesday.

If you had logged in to YouTube on Tuesday, you might have noticed that the sidebar, which allows you to access things like your subscriptions feed, trending videos, and the “Library,” which houses your Watch Later list and video history, was gone.

According to Downdetector, a website that analyses outages by aggregating status data from a variety of sources, including user-submitted problems on its platform, almost 10,000 users reported faults with the service. Users also reported problems accessing the live television network YouTube TV.

Logging in, and switching accounts were also among the issues faced by users, YouTube tweeted at the time of disruption. The firm, after becoming aware of the outage, tweeted that it is aware of the problem and is working on a solution.

However, the issues have all been fixed, said YouTube on the same day after a few hours. To support the statement, YouTube has tweeted, “All fixed – you should now be able to log in, switch between accounts, and use the account menu & navigation bar across all services (YouTube, YouTube TV, YouTube Music, YouTube Studio) and devices.”
