On Monday evening, Google went down for thousands of users making several services unavailable.
Google services including YouTube and Gmail are down globally.
Google Search is functioning for some people but others cannot use it.
Google has not publicly acknowledged the problem yet.
Google services abruptly went down on Monday evening, impacting many users. Among the services that were disrupted at the time of writing include Gmail, Google Search, YouTube, and Drive among others. the newest outage, which seems to be more intensive than the last one, seemingly started around 10-15 minutes back.
Down detector, the web site that tracks web outages, has reported over 40,000 outage cases from round the world. YouTube and Gmail seem to possess 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’s own tracker for its online services doesn’t seem to have been updated. Despite the outage reports about all consumer Google products like Gmail and YouTube, the status page for Google services immediately is showing no outage, against each service. It shows a green dot, which necessarily means the services are live and working evidently. Maybe Google servers will take some time to reflect the changes. for a few people, Google Search seems to be working fine while some users are reporting even Search isn’t working for them.
Google has not acknowledged anything publicly yet, which involves the company putting out a statement or a tweet to point out that this glitch was genuine and therefore the company is functioning on fixing it as soon because it can.
But the YouTube team, meanwhile, has addressed the problem. On Twitter, YouTube said: “We are aware that a lot of of you’re having issues accessing YouTube immediately our team is aware and looking out into it. We’ll update you here as soon as we’ve got more news.”
