Google, Spotify and many other major websites are all down across the globe

Currently, there's a major web outage in the world, as several major web services have been experiencing outages durign the past 45 minutes or so. Affected sites include Google and Spotify.
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.
