YouTube announced Thursday that it will not release its Rewind video because 2020 was “different”. Every year YouTube shares a Rewind video, which is a compilation of all the key moments of a year and other viral trends. However, the Google-owned music company is not planning to release a video this year because 2020 was not a happy year.
YouTube shared a statement on Twitter saying it wouldn’t host his rewind video. “Since 2010, we’ve ended the year with Rewind – a look back at the year’s most impactful creators, videos and trends. Whether you love it or just remember 2018, Rewind was always meant to be a celebration. than you. But 2020 was different. And it doesn’t feel right to go on as if it wasn’t. So, this year we’re taking a break from Rewind. We know much of the good that happened in 2020 was created by everyone. You. You found ways to lift people up, help them cope and make them laugh. You made a difficult year really better. Thank you for making a difference, “YouTube said in a statement.
Notably, this would be the first time since 2010 that YouTube hasn’t released its Rewind video. Interestingly, in 2018 the rewind video became the nastiest video of the year. YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki also agreed that the video that was created in 2018 was one of anger. “We felt it didn’t accurately show key moments of the year, nor did it reflect the YouTube you know. We’d better tell our story in 2019,” Wojnicki said in a blog post.
Meanwhile, YouTube faced a massive outage in major countries on Thursday – the Google-owned video app was disabled for an hour, but it appears to be working fine now. Soon after users complained that they were unable to access YouTube, the company acknowledged the glitch Twitter and issued a statement
According to downdetector, YouTube went down in India between 5 a.m. and 8 a.m. About 94% of users had trouble watching videos on the app, while only 3% had trouble uploading a video. About 2% of users could not access the website. More than 280,000 users reported errors on YouTube in under an hour.
YouTube was quick to recognize the problem and restore its services soon after.
