In case you were wondering why Hangouts isn’t working this afternoon: Google reports it has been experiencing outages for Google+ Hangouts since earlier today. The company has been providing updates on its app status page but is yet to resolve the issue.

Google says the “the problem affecting a significant subset of users” and that some “will not be able to start new video hangouts.”  The company’s most recent update notes that the issue is ongoing mostly for users in Europe.

We’ll update here once the problem has been resolved.
