It appears that many social media apps such as Snapchat, Spotify and Alphabet’s Google Cloud are back online after a brief global outage on Tuesday.
Google said the issues with cloud networks, which counts Etsy, Spotify and Snap Inc as customers, were partially resolved shortly after thousands of users flagged them on outage-tracking site downdetector.com.
The Google Cloud dashboard earlier showed that services including Cloud Developer Tools, Cloud Console and Cloud Engine were experiencing disruptions.

Quickly, the cloud company behind the massive global internet outage in June said it was seeing increasing asset errors at a “shared cloud provider, unrelated to the Fastly cloud platform.”
Tuesday’s brief outage came on the heels of a widespread six-hour outage last month that crippled Meta Platforms Inc, formerly Facebook, after faulty configuration changes on the company’s routers.
Downdetector tracks outages just by compiling status reports from a series of sources, including user-sent errors on their platform. The outage may have affected more users.
