Spotify's music services are down and even their homepage throws a 404 error when visiting their site. Furthermore, Google's services are currently unavailable, which means that all the mobile games and websites that rely on Google's services, such as login, are experiencing problems too.
DownDetector, a website that monitors the status of major web services shows that problems started about an hour ago.
And obviously, social media is full of reports about the outage with hastags such as #googledown and #spotifydown.

This #googledown web services problem goes to show one of the major issues with 3 companies owning servers for 90% of the internet. Amazon, Microsoft, and Google own everything we do in an invisible way-- grant (@fitzweekly) November 16, 2021
