Google Services had gone down in multiple places, mostly back online! (Authentication System Outage for 15 minutes)

Was trying to enjoy my breakfast with some YouTube and that got ruined...go to check emails and that got ruined too...Google get your %4@* together here...they had an issue with YouTube a couple months ago (October).

Just spent like 20 mins wondering why I can't sign in on my PC. Yet in a rather odd twist, most things (that I usually do around this time anyway) are fine on my phone?

Google and amazon control the internet. Just imagine a full scale AWS outage. 33% of the internet would die.

I've got a YouTube page that I had open prior to the outage, that's still working. 

 

Google Drive has just come back online for me.

They turned it off and on again, always fixes the problem

I legit have a shirt that says this and wear it as a jab to my father in law who calls me all the time and 90% of the time just power cycling whatever it is resolves it.

Floatplane would still work. They made their service hosting independent!

Was wanting a YouTube video to procrastinate on getting ready for work. 
 

Was forced to actually get ready for work instead.

It seems like nowdays service outage is the equivalent of stock market crash.

Just imagine a hospital relying on Google services went down. Those 30 minutes of downtime can spell life or death for many patients. Or if you’re in a court hearing that uses Google Meet but all of a sudden it stopped working. 

There is more that meets the eye

That's dark. And a push to see the real life implications which I implied in "my thoughts"

Level 3/CenturyLink actually does... when they had an issue with BGP routing a few months ago.. over half the internet across the globe was down or severely degraded as a result...

Oh, that's sus. Could be related, could not. Too many hackers nowadays. I get more ads saying "Become a hacker" nowadays, so some people got serious, maybe. 

 

Anyways, we really shouldn't spread conspiracy theories on this forum!

No idea, I'm not working currently and on holiday and so is basically the rest of ITS. Building could be on fire for all I know lol. I'm pretty sure relevant information would be sitting in the inbox of our security and risk associate director but he and I are not working 🤷‍♂️

It's not just Google, as Discord was also down at the time.
