The Google-owned streaming platform went down at approximately 9:20pm ET/6:20pm PT on October 16th and has been down for approximately 55 minutes. YouTube going down, let alone for a period of time this long, is relatively rare.

As expected, Google’s YouTube app isn’t working on desktop, iOS, Android or the Apple TV.

Google’s YouTube TV, a U.S.-exclusive video streaming platform, is also down right now according to various reports. Nearly a decade ago YouTube went down inadvertently as a result of an attempt by Pakistan’s government to remove an anti-Islamic film from the streaming platform.

MobileSyrup has reached out to Google for comment on YouTube’s outage. This story will be updated with more information as it becomes available.
