Google Cloud outage: Snapchat, Spotify and Spotify fix

Multiple social media apps such as Snapchat, Spotify and Alphabet's Google Cloud appeared to be coming back online after a brief global outage on Tuesday.

Problems with Cloud Networking, which includes Etsy, Spotify and Snap Inc, were partially resolved shortly after thousands of users flagged it on the outage tracking website downdetector.com.

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

More than 50,000 users reported issues on the downdetector, but Spotify has said they are aware of some issues and are checking them right now. The disruptions have 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. In the meantime, we recommend staying logged in, the Snapchat support said earlier in a tweet.

Fastly, the cloud company behind a major global internet outage in June, said it was seeing more errors with origins in a common cloud provider, unrelated to Fastly's edge cloud platform. Tuesday's brief disruption follows 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 tracks outages by collating status reports from a series of sources, including user-submitted errors on its platform. The outage may have affected a larger number of users.
