Users across the world are reporting issues with Google services, including Search, Gmail, YouTube, Google Meet and Google Drive.

Some users are also facing issues while accessing Google Drive and Google Meet, hinting at a wider, large-scale outage effecting major Google services.

Update: Normalcy has been restored as popular Google services including Gmail and YouTube are back online after suffering from global outage on Monday. The Google Workspace Status Dashboard has also been updated to reflect that all Google services are now working without any issue. The exact reason behind the outage is unclear at this point of time.

Google is down! Users across the world are reporting issues with Google websites and services, including Search, Gmail, YouTube, Google Meet and Google Drive. Logging into Gmail is currently giving the error message, “We’re sorry, but your account is temporarily unavailable. We apologise for the inconvenience and suggest trying again in a few minutes.”

Logging into YouTube is also showing an error dashboard saying, “something went wrong.”

Update: The @TeamYouTube handle tweeted, it was aware of the issue and looking into it.

Google Search seems to be working fine at this point of time, but this might just be a one-off thing as people have been reporting about issues with Search as well on micro-blogging website Twitter.

Some users are also facing issues while accessing Google Drive and Google Meet, hinting at a wider, large-scale outage effecting major Google services.

Third-party apps and services that rely on Google for sign-in have also appear to be affected, as a result.

In India, the outage appears to have started just around 5:00PM, according to tracking website Downdetector.

Google is yet to formally acknowledge the issue, though heading over to Google Workspace Status Dashboard gives us clear idea what services are experiencing an outage. It seems the issue is related to Google accounts, rather than Google services themselves. For instance, one can access some Google services by going in to incognito mode. Also, it is possible to access some of these Google services if one’s not signed in.
