This issue seems to be affecting users worldwide, so no-one can currently access the service!

If you are trying to access the service, chances are you can't currently get in. Hopefully, Google will have a fix for this soon!



Unfortunately, everybody's favourite video watching site is also currently experiencing some issues.

The site is still accessible when using incognito mode, which is found in the top right-hand corner under the three dots.

Fingers crossed the team at Google get this sorted quickly!


Unsurprisingly, as one service falls, so do the others.

It seems that Google's Gmail service is also currently experiencing issues, with many unable to access it.
