A Google Cloud outage is currently affecting a number of services in and out of the Google suite including Snap and Discord as well as Google services like Gmail, Nest, and others.

The problem was first reported by East Coast users in the U.S. in the afternoon, but reports from outage monitor DownDetector indicate that more regions may have been affected by the outage.

In a statement posted to its Google Cloud Platform the company said it was experience a multi-region issue with the Google Compute Engine.

“We are experiencing high levels of network congestion in the eastern USA, affecting multiple service in Google Cloud, GSuite, and YouTube. Users may see slow performance or intermittent errors. We believe we have identified the root cause of the congestion and expect to return to a normal service shortly,” the company said in a statement.
