Google recovers from outage that took down YouTube, Gmail, and Snapchat

The root cause was issues with Google’s Cloud service that powers apps other than just Google’s own web services.

Discord, Snapchat, and Vimeo users are also affected, as these all use Google Cloud on the backend.

The problems for YouTube follow high profile outages for the popular video service in January and October.

Just a friendly reminder for those who think "cloud" means "always working".
