If you’re facing difficulties accessing videos on YouTube, you’re not alone. YouTube is experiencing what appears to be a global issue, as a result of which many people are unable to access videos on Google’s platform. Some users reported reported getting the 500 internal error when visiting YouTube on Monday. Several users also reported that while they are able to open the website, YouTube channels themselves are inaccessible.
While YouTube is yet to acknowledge any issue, third-party services such as DownDetector have confirmed a sudden surge in complaints about YouTube access. These complaints started to pour in starting around 6:00pm IST on Monday. Users accessing the service through YouTube’s mobile apps are also reporting issues.
Update 6:33PM IST: Some users who were earlier facing issues accessing YouTube are now saying that the service seems to be working fine.
