Google services, apps hit by global outage
A range of Google services, including Gmail and Google Docs, were unavailable to customers for more than a half hour Monday morning due to an outage. The services have now been largely restored and are available for most users, Google said.
Users across the world were unable to access the gamut of Google’s productivity and collaboration tools, which also include Google Calendar, Sheets, Meet and Chat. Customers in Europe appeared to be the hardest hit, according to the Down Detector website, with the outage occurring around lunchtime for those in the UK; users on the U.S. east coast also faced disruption just as the work day was getting started.
