Gogle services including Gmail, Google Search, YouTube, and Drive abruptly went down on Monday evening, impacting hundreds of users.
The latest outage, which seems to be more intensive than the last one, seemingly started around 5 pm on Monday.
YouTube and Gmail seem to have been worst hit globally, causing an uproar on Twitter about how Google services have left them high and dry especially on the first day of the week.
Google has confirmed on its service status page that all its services are suffering an outage.
About Gmail, for example, it says: “We’re aware of a problem with Gmail affecting a majority of users. The affected users are unable to access Gmail. We will provide an update by 12/14/20, 5:42 PM detailing when we expect to resolve the problem. Please note that this resolution time is an estimate and may change.”
The same message has been repeated for all other services, against which now there is a red dot.
Previously, Google’s status page showed a green dot for all services, which was nearly 15 minutes after the outage began.
For some people, Google Search seems to be working fine while some users are reporting even Search is not working for them.
