YouTube is Down
— 3rdPartyGaming (@3rdPartyGaming2) December 14, 2020
We noticed the sudden stop of all YouTube services at around 1450hrs Nairobi time. Trying to log in to the site, this is all we see.
A lot of us depend on YouTube for entertainment and the platform being down is causing a lot of chaos on the internet. Going further down the line, it looks like Gmail, Google Drive, Meet and Search are all down.

Currently, the status page for its services is reporting that none are experiencing issues. However, reports are mounting on Twitter as users can’t access its basic services. Google.com itself appears to still be working, though.
What Happens Next?
This is the question on almost everyone’s mind. Will Google fix the issue? Is it a hacker? Hakuna stima Silicon Valley? What happens to the content of the creators? Is this the final stage of Jumanji 2020?
