You’re NoT THE ONLY ONE, YouTube Is Down
Internet users started to notice that YouTube’s desktop site and the app were down around 1pm AEDST Wednesday 17th October, and everything remains pretty grim more than half an hour later.
YouTube TV is also broken atm, so if youre one of the 7 people that use that, soz.
This truly doesn’t happen often and YouTube is usually back up and running after a glitch within a matter of minutes.

YouTube has been down for almost an hour
YouTube TV did suffer service interruption during the World Cup series for a short while but came back without many dramas.
Last time people panicked this hard over YouTube being down, the cause was Pakistan’s government accidentally causing a multi-hour blackout over 10 years ago by attempting to censor a trailer for an anti-Islamic film.
