YouTube, the world’s biggest online video sharing and streaming service, said it restored service after engineers worked to address intermittent outages.

“We’re back! Thanks for all of your patience. If you continue to experience issues, please let us know,” YouTube, part of Google-parent Alphabet Inc., tweeted. The notice came just over an hour after an earlier Twitter post that acknowledged reports of trouble with YouTube, YouTube TV and YouTube Music.

YouTube’s ad sales are a key revenue driver for Alphabet earnings, as seen in the latest earnings report. Still, inappropriate content on YouTube has become a headache for the business over the past year, as it struggles to contain the spread of disturbing content from its vast, decentralized creative community.

Team YouTube@TeamYouTubeWe’re back! Thanks for all of your patience. If you continue to experience issues, please let us know.

Thanks for your reports about YouTube, YouTube TV and YouTube Music access issues. We're working on resolving this and will let you know once fixed. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and will keep you updated.
