Google services restored after a crash

YouTube, Snapchat, Gmail, and other Google services went down for more than four hours Sunday afternoon in the eastern United States.

The problem, due to “network congestion,” was resolved Sunday at 7:30 pm, said Google Alphabet inc. on its website. It had started four hours earlier, at 3:25 pm.

“We will conduct a post mortem and make appropriate improvements to our systems to prevent this from happening again,” says a Google spokesperson in a statement to The Verge. “We sincerely apologize to those that were impacted by today’s issues.”

Many Snapchat and YouTube users have complained of Twitter crashes under the hashtags #YouTubeDOWN and #snapchatdown.
