If you are unable to watch YouTube videos, you’re not the only one, as the site appears to have crashed entirely for users worldwide.
In a very rare occurrence, the video-sharing website has completely gone down, not loading any videos or menus on the desktop or mobile versions.
Reports from around the world quickly came in, shared on social media as users complained that they were unable to watch videos on Tuesday evening.
YouTube has not had a major crash of this kind in recent memory, with only small bugs and glitches typically affecting the site’s status.
YouTube is on average the 2nd most visited website in the world, and this is the first major crash of the website in years. It comes on the same day that Twitter also had a major malfunction, sending out strange spam notifications to users mobile devices.
YouTube has not publicly identified the cause of the downtime, but they have confirmed via Twitter that they are actively looking into the issue.
