A Google Cloud networking issue has taken down a handful of prominent websites today, including Spotify, Snapchat, Etsy and Discord. Google says the issue is partially resolved as of 1:17PM ET, but a full fix is still incoming. Affected websites will display 404 error messages and there is no workaround on the customer side.

Users began reporting issues with some sites Tuesday just before 1PM ET, and Google Cloud confirmed the networking problem at 1:10PM ET.

"We apologize to all who are affected by the disruption," the company wrote.

Update 11/16 3:18PM ET: Google says the issue has been fully resolved. "We will publish an analysis of this incident, once we have completed our internal investigation," the company wrote.
