The names of the mail service and the video platform operated by the tech giant trended on Twitter as people rushed to share their frustration and surprise.
People trying to access the services get a “Temporary Error” message, and a suggestion that it may become available again “in a few minutes.”

YouTube’s support team tweeted, however, that they were “aware” of the issues and were “looking into it.”
The problem seems to be with the part of Google services handling user accounts. YouTube can be accessed in “incognito” mode on a browser supporting the function, like Google Chrome.
