Google services abruptly went down on Monday evening, impacting hundreds of users. Among the services that were disrupted include Gmail, Google Search, YouTube, and Drive among others. The latest outage, which seems to be more intensive than the last one, seemingly started around 10-15 minutes back.
Downdetector, the website that tracks web outages, has reported over 40,000 outage cases from around the world. 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.
Meanwhile, Google is yet to comment on the issues.
However, of those who reported issues with YouTube, 54% said they couldn’t access the website, 42% couldn’t watch videos and 3% were struggling to log-in.
And of those who reported problems with Gmail, 75% couldn’t log-in, 15% couldn’t access the website, and 8% were not receiving messages.
