    Multiple major company websites from Home Depot Inc. to Spotify Technology SA are seeing user reports of outages, according to Downdetector. Users have also reported issues on Etsy Inc.  and Snap Inc. sites. Google Cloud reported issues with cloud networking just after 10 a.m. San Francisco time, saying customers may encounter error messages when accessing web pages. Similarly, Downdetector reported that there may be a widespread outage at Google Cloud, which could be impacting other services. A representative for Google Cloud couldn’t immediately be located for comment.

    UPDATE - Google Cloud, Snap, Spotify back up after brief outage

    (Reuters) Multiple social media apps such as Snapchat, Spotify and Alphabet's Google Cloud appeared to be coming back online after a brief global outage on Tuesday. Google said issues with its Cloud Networking, which counts Etsy, Spotify and Snap Inc as clients, were partially resolved shortly after thousands of users flagged it on outage tracking website downdetector.com.

    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.

    "Many Snapchatters are having trouble using the app. Hang tight, we're working on a fix. In the meantime, we recommend staying logged in," Snapchat support said earlier in a tweet.

    Fastly, the cloud company behind a major global internet outage in June, said it was seeing increased errors with origins in a "common cloud provider, unrelated to Fastly's edge cloud platform."

    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.
