Increased API Latency and Slow Message Sends
Incident Report for Discord
From 4:50 to 5:05 PST Google's Cloud Storage availability dropped to 0. This caused message uploads to fail and retry. When the service became available again the upload backlog caused additional stress on parts of the service.

The service is now recovered and operating as expected.
