Google Trends indicates that there’s been a spike in searches related to YouTube being down, especially YouTube TV and the YouTube app. Users have been reporting issues like being redirected to the same channel on their feed or not seeing anything when clicking on the YouTube app. Others reported that they were logged out or the page simply wouldn’t load.
