Internet outage: Spotify, Discord crashes, and more

refresh

We’re hearing more reports of Discord returning, including from people on the team who are using it. Maybe the storm really passed?

A Source (someone we know who plays it) told us that Destiny is “down for maintenance” on Xbox…but it still works fine on Stadia.

Remember Stadia? Well, maybe now is the time to get rid of theā€¦ error, virtual console.

We’ve heard reports that Spotify is more stable if you’re using a desktop app, rather than the online site.

So if you usually use the Spotify music website (why?), maybe try the desktop app. However, this may be just hearsay or confirmation bias, and our survey size is very limited, so don’t get your hopes up.

We thought these issues were for the US only, but a few members of the TechRadar team in the UK reported that the web app didn’t work for them either.

Well, it works for me, so I’ll just enjoy that. YouTube, Apple Music, Prime Music, Tidal, and billions of other music streaming apps are still running, so hopefully no one has to sit in silence now.

The Discord error status log also indicates that the problem persists, but there could be another reason behind the low user report numbers in Downdetector.

It’s possible that since everyone knows there’s a Spotify and Discord outage now, no one bothers to report it anymore. This would make it look like the problem has subsided, when in reality it hasn’t.

The Spotify community page is still reporting an issue, with an official post 50 minutes ago stating that the main issue is that people can’t log in.

Ah, no – one of my fellow Americans confirmed that Discord is still available for them. Well, maybe it’s coming back slowly, but not for everyone just yet.

Is it starting to look like services are back to normal?

At Downdetector, problem reports have fallen sharply over the past few minutes. We’re checking with some people to see if the apps are working again.

Despite the fact that Amazon Web Services is reporting issues, Bezos’ web hosting platform doesn’t seem to be the problem, because then there will be more issues.

Oh, and AWS didn’t report anything as far as we can tell.

We’ll bring you more when we figure out what happens.

Reports indicate that Spotify and Discord are the two sites with the worst outages. Actually Twitter trending page It started where people share memes.

At least Twitter is not down.

Oh, you might see in Downdetector that Apple’s online store is down – well, that’s not because of the outage (or maybe it is, but there’s another reason).

That’s because Apple’s March event has just ended, and the company usually takes its online store offline while it fills it up with more products.

Well, tech packed day. We’ve seen the iPhone SE (2022), the iPad Air 5, the M1 Ultra, and more. You can read our full live blog of the Apple event here. Also, the store has just come back online.

Some of the other reports come from members of the TechRadar team in the US. They are finding that both Discord and Spotify are down.

Spotify is another disabled service.

However, this certainly isn’t a widespread outage as we sometimes see, as many members of the TechRadar team are getting into it just fine.

However, all of the team members surveyed are from the UK. This sounds very much like the problem of the United States.

It should be noted that this is not the case everybody These outages will be affected – but it is enough that some companies are commenting on these issues.
