All right guys! I know how it must be feeling when you seriously can’t access Google Play and download any app or game from there. I bet you’re aware that YouTube has been blocked by Bangladeshi government in protest of anti-islamic video uploaded to the network. But the block didn’t simply apply to to YouTube. Since YouTube has some close connection with other Google services, the problem has extended to a wide array of other services including Google Play, Google Drive, Google API, etc.
Now, I can’t exactly say which services are usable. Because from my Qubee right now, I cannot access Google Play. But a couple of hours earlier, I did access Google Play. But now I can’t. GrameenPhone internet users have been facing the same issue. While some users cannot access Google Play including Gmail and other Google services, some others report no issue.
I’m a hardcore Google fan and use almost all of their products that are somehow useful to me. However, this thing is for sure that the problem is occurring because of the government blocking YouTube. When you log in to Gmail, keep an eye on the status bar and you’ll see that your login is being transferred from YouTube servers. I can’t explain the technical details because I don’t know. But it has got something to do with YouTube.
So, don’t worry if you can’t access Google Play from Bangladesh. It’s got nothing with your Internet settings or your device. As soon as the government unblocks YouTube, you will see the problem getting solved within moments.
And by the way, in case you didn’t know, you can visit YouTube, Google Drive and other sites normally by this trick described on another post of my blog.
