Google Cloud outage hits Snapchat and Spotify, but there's no fix

Services like cloud developer tools, cloud console and cloud engine were facing disruptions, according to Google Cloud's dashboard.

Spotify had said it was aware of some issues and is checking them after more than 50,000 users reported problems on the downdetector, but those disruptions have since been resolved, according to the website.

Many Snapchatters are having trouble using the app. We're working on a fix, and we're working on it. Snapchat support said earlier in a tweet that they recommend staying logged in in the meantime.

Fastly, the cloud company behind a major global internet outage in June, said it was seeing increased errors with origins in a common cloud provider, unrelated to Fastly's edge cloud platform. Tuesday's brief disruption was caused by a six-hour widespread outage last month that crippled Meta Platforms Inc., formerly known as Facebook, after faulty configuration changes on the company's routers.

Downdetector only tracks outages by collating status reports from a series of sources, including user-submitted errors on its platform. A larger number of users may have been affected by the outage.
