There is a list of the most critical problems that are affecting users, but it is not a complete list.

The company acknowledged that the problems could be causing problems with users being unable to navigate or stream from its live TV service. Users trying to stream YouTube TV via Chromecast and Google TV said they were unable to log back in, for instance.

Users who reported that their videos had disappeared were responded to by the account.

Users aren't experiencing the same problems as the rest of the population, so so far. If you're having any issues with the apps, it's likely because of this.

The underlying technology, like the cloud services, are what causes these kinds of semi-outages.

Further updates will be published to the company's support site. The issues were being reported before the post was published.

There is no update on the fix on YouTube.
