Is Youtube down?

The website Down Detector reported over 1,800 reports about the outage between 12.30pm and 12.45pm ET.

Reports indicated that users were primarily having issues streaming videos, with 78 percent saying that was the main problem. Another 13 percent of users said they had issues with the website working and 10 percent reported problems with the app.

People immediately took to Downdetector to express their confusion and problems accessing the streaming service.

One person wrote: “It’s laggy, even though I use a strong device,” and another wrote: “Live streams down. Tried several and all are buffering.”

How can I check if Youtube is not working?

Those who might be experiencing difficulties with Youtube can check another social media app such as Twitter for reports.

If you don’t have a Twitter account Down Detector will tell users when the apps are down or experiencing difficulties.

If it appears the problem may not be widespread, try checking the internet connection on your device or exiting the app before logging back in.
