Key YouTube features and services experience worldwide outage

Update: According to a tweet from the official @TeamYouTube profile, the issue has been resolved.

The original piece follows below.

If you’ve been having trouble signing into YouTube or have noticed that some of the video-sharing site’s menus are missing, you’re not the only one experiencing those issues.

On Tuesday, users began reporting on Downdetector that they were having issues with using and accessing YouTube services. Issues include not being able to sign in, not being able to switch accounts, not being able to find navigation and settings menus (most notably the bar on the left-hand side), and even receiving a “No internet connection” error message while playing videos.

The official @TeamYouTube Twitter account tweeted a response saying that YouTube was aware of the issues and is working on a fix:

Getting reports from around the 🌎 that some of you are having trouble with certain features across YouTube services (e.g. logging in, switching accounts & using the navigation bar) – we’re aware & working on a fix.

At present, there is no known ETA for a fix and users are still reporting issues on Downdetector. We’ll update you when we know more.
