What you need to know
- Snapchat and Spotify are just two of the services currently struggling.
- Discord and Etsy are also showing an unusually high number of failures.
Updated November 16, 2021: Looks like the issue is Google's to fix.
Update, November 16 (7:15 pm ET): According to Downdetector, most services have resolved their outages.
A check of DownDetector shows that Spotify and Snapchat are joined by Discord, Etsy, and a whole host more services in experiencing some sort of outage right now.
At this point, it isn't clear what's going on, but problems began around 09:30 PST.
We'll be keeping an eye on things from here, but the last time an outage like this happened, half of the internet stopped working!
Fingers crossed that isn't the case this time around and that a fix is in the works.
Update, November 15 (7:15 pm ET) — According to Downdetector, most services have resolved their outages
According to the latest monitoring data on Downdetector, most of the services that were experiencing outages and performance issues like Spotify, TikTok, and Snapchat have resolved those issues.
Interestingly, both Facebook Messenger and Instagram are starting to creep up in performance reports so we'll have to wait and see if that trend continues.
