ALPHABET Inc’s YouTube says it has fixed an issue that caused thousands of users to lose access to its platform or face slow services on Tuesday.

Downdetector, which showed there were more than 15,000 incidents of people reporting issues with YouTube, tracks outages by collating status reports from several sources, including user-submitted errors on its platform.

“If you were having a slower than normal experience or were having trouble accessing YouTube earlier today – this has been fixed! The issue ran for about 20 mins,” YouTube tweeted.

A major outage disrupted Amazon’s cloud services for several hours last week. It resulted in Netflix, Disney+, Robinhood and a slew of other services being inaccessible, including Amazon’s e-commerce website.

YouTube experienced 65 outages over the past 12 months, according to web tool reviewing website ToolTester.
