Google Service Outage
Google Services including Gmail, Drive, Docs, Slides, Sites, Groups, Chat, Meet, Keep, and Voice are experiencing disruption. This is being reported on the G-Suite Status Dashboard. We have been seeing failure in uploading attachments across Google Services. Even while uploading videos on YouTube, creating a new email, or uploading the files in both personal or G-Suite Gmail accounts.
DownDetector is showing a huge report spike showing the issues with Google services like Gmail, Google Drive, and YouTube. Twitter is also flooded by the number of tweets reporting to YouTube for having errors while uploading videos. According to the Down Detector, the issue seems to be global and not only in some countries. We were able to see massive reports of different apps and games like Discord, Zoom, Pokémon Go, etc.
Now, most of the service is resuming and seems to be perfectly fine. The major service outage from different apps and games has been already fixed as of now. If there would be any more updates regarding the service outage, we would be sure to cover them.
