World’s biggest video-sharing platform suffered a brief outage earlier today. Google’s number one video-sharing/viewing platform had went down for a few minutes displaying an internal server error on the main page. Although, it is still not clear if the outage was on a global level.
The YouTube- YouTube.com website during the downtime showed a long line of code along with the text saying, “Sorry, something went wrong. A team of highly trained monkeys has been dispatched to deal with this situation,” it said.
“If you see them, send them this information as text (screenshots frighten them),” the message further added.
There has not been any noticeable change on the YouTube website since it’s back online.
Also, Earlier this month, YouTube rolled out a new feature called as ‘Smart Offline’ in India. This feature lets the users download videos at cheaper night time data rates offered by mobile operators in India.
“Today, we are beginning to roll out a feature called Smart Offline on YouTube that lets you take advantage of the cheaper data rates as offered by your mobile operator, without requiring you to stay up late at night,” Google wrote on its India blog.
