Users report outage on social media apps and internet services including Snapchat and Spotify

Several social media apps and internet services including Snapchat, Spotify, Amazon and Google Cloud were reported to be down on Tuesday.

Spotify said it was aware of “some issues” and were “checking them” after more than 50,000 users reported issues with the music streaming service.

The Snapchat support account tweeted: “Many Snapchatters are having trouble using the app. Hang tight, we’re working on a fix. In the meantime, we recommend staying logged in.”

Google Cloud’s tech support account also put out a statement on Twitter saying they are aware of “an issue” with the platform and directed users to its dashboard to monitor the situation.

The outage tracking website Downdetector showed a spike in reports of problems on the two platforms on Tuesday as well as several other internet services.

The recent outage reports follow a six-hour widespread disruption that hit Meta-owned services, including Facebook, last month after faulty configuration changes on the social media company’s routers.

The social network – as well as Instagram and WhatsApp – were inaccessible for its 3.5 billion users for several hours last month because of the technical issues.

Facebook has said there was “no malicious activity” behind a widespread outage after saying a faulty configuration change was to blame for the disruption.

Facebook also stressed there is “no evidence that user data was compromised as a result of this downtime”.
