According to Internet monitoring sites Pingdom and Downdetector, multiple major websites have been experiencing outages today, apparently as a result of a Google Cloud outage. According to Internet tracking website NetBlocks, the outage is:

…due to a Google Cloud Networking technical fault; incident not related to country-level internet disruptions or filtering

Among the services affected are heavyweights such as Spotify, Snapchat, Discord, and Google Cloud itself. Cloudfare is also reported to be investigating issues with its gateway. Something to keep an eye on.
