Google Cloud Fixes Outage That Hit Home Depot, Snap, Spotify


Sites and services like Spotify, Discord, Snapchat, and Etsy seem to be recovering after an outage that brought them, and many other sites, down for a little less than an hour on Tuesday.
Google Cloud’s dashboard earlier showed that services including cloud developer tools, cloud console and cloud engine were facing disruptions. Spotify had said it was aware of “some issues right now and are checking them” after more than 50,000 users reported issues on Downdetector, but those disruptions have since been resolved, according to the website.
Tuesday’s brief disruption follows a six-hour widespread outage last month that crippled Meta Platforms Inc, formerly known as Facebook, after faulty configuration changes on the company’s routers. Downdetector only tracks outages by collating status reports from a series of sources, including user-submitted errors on its platform. The outage might have affected a larger number of users.
