AI apocalypse? ChatGPT, Claude and Perplexity are all down at the same time

After a multi-hour outage that took place in the early hours of the morning, OpenAI’s ChatGPT chatbot is down again — but this time, it’s not the only AI provider affected. As of Tuesday morning, both Anthropic’s Claude and Perplexity are seeing issues, too.

Google’s Gemini still appears to be operating for the time being.

It’s unusual for three major AI providers to all be down at the same time, which could signal a broader infrastructure issues or internet-scale problem, such as those that affect multiple social media sites simultaneously, for example.

On ChatGPT’s landing page, the ability to message the AI chatbot is not working, and the arrow to submit a query is grayed out.

Claude’s website is displaying an error with a message that reads: “An error occurred in the Server Components render. The specific message is omitted in production builds to avoid leaking sensitive details. A digest property is included on this error instance which may provide additional details about the nature of the error.”

The site then advises to “try again.”

Perplexity’s site instead is serving the over-capacity message that would appear when the service has received too many requests. It says “We’ll be right back” and “We’re getting a lot of questions right now and have reached our capacity. Please come back soon.”

Of note, ChatGPT had only recently resolved a lengthy outage that affected its service overnight. The chatbot had been down for users around the world during the early morning hours (Pacific Time), leading to complaints across X and Threads. The company’s status page signaled a bug was being fixed and the issue was being monitored around 12:21 a.m. PT.

As of 7:33 a.m. PT, the status page has been updated to say that ChatGPT is once again unavailable for some users, and that OpenAI is “currently investigating this issue.”

The companies did not immediately return requests for comment or more information.
