Earlier today, Google services like Gmail, YouTube, Google Drive, Google Docs, Maps, Adwords and Adsense, and Google Pay experienced an outage all around the world. Firstly, Google search was not working also, but now the service is up and about.
As per the reports, hundreds of reports concerning the outage were pouring in on down detector from across Europe, the US, Canada, India, South Africa, countries in Central and South America, and Australia. Many users have taken to Twitter to report the issue.
As per the down detector, the first reports started coming in at around 4 PM PST. Though, Google has still not detailed the reason behind the outage. At the time of writing, over 9,000 reported cases from users having issues opening YouTube. An alike outage was reported on Gmail.
Google announced that it is working on the matter. Yet, the company has not been able to point out the issue and seems rather inactive in dealing with the matter. It looks like an exceptional failure of the system.
Nonetheless, thousands of people around the world working from home are being majorly affected as more than two billion users are presently locked out of their email inboxes, cloud storage, documents, and Watch Later playlists. The company faced a similar outage in August as well but it recovered rather quickly.
