In brief: Google and YouTube are continuing to push forward with an approach created to further capitalize on ad revenue associated with TVs and the general increase in the emergence of a streaming culture. The users who are trying to access the platform are seeing an internal error message. The site infrastructure was still loading for users, but the videos themselves did not play and were replaced by error messages imploring users to "please try again later". "We're back! Thanks for all of your patience". At that time, both YouTube, Gmail, and Maps went offline. After fixing the issue the company tweeted, "We're back!" Actually, most people can't because they are so used to this Google-owned streaming site that they can't even fathom what they would do if it wasn't working or was down. Because of YouTube's outage on Wednesday morning, users from all over the world could not see the videos on it.

However, this isn't the first time the service has been down.
