YouTube abruptly went down for around an hour on Tuesday evening.

YouTube TV and YouTube Music also experienced the service disruption.

The United States Philadelphia Police notified citizens not to dial 911 regarding the YouTube downtime because they said they couldn't fix it. "We apologize for any inconvenience".

No further information on the issue is available. The reason for the outage, a rare incident for the company with more than 1.8 billion monthly users, is still not publicly known.

Thousands took to social media to report about the error messages and video streaming issues.
