"The network congestion issue affecting Google Cloud, G Suite, and YouTube is resolved for the vast majority of users, and we expect a full resolution in the near future", Google's engineering team said in an update.
"We will conduct a post-mortem and make appropriate improvements to our systems to prevent this from happening again", the spokesperson said.
"The data point we can take away from this is that Google's load and its customer's loads are treated definitively equally, because both its own services, such as YouTube, and other services such as Snapchat, a Google Cloud customer, were down", Mueller said.

Trump took similar jabs at Brussels, claiming that " nobody treats us much worse than the European Union ". He said the idea was to work with the Mexican government "to make sure that things did get better".
Google issued a status update on its Cloud dashboard, stating that the problem began on Sunday afternoon, and that the company was attempting to deal with the issue. Outage-tracking service Down Detector indicated that access to YouTube was severely disrupted across the country, with the northeastern USA particularly having a rough go of it.
Services that monitor connectivity of major websites began reporting widespread outages of a host of Google services at about 3 p.m., majority in the eastern half of the country. The search giant blamed the issue on high levels of network congestion in the eastern USA. Google said it had identified the root cause, but did not elaborate.
The issue, which primarily affected the eastern parts of the U.S., was resolved in the early hours of this morning.
For now, users of these services will have to wait until Google has resolved the issue. Much of Google's suite of services is affected, including Gmail, Google Drive, Nest, and YouTube.
