  • It’s not just Gmail but other services within the Google suite of products that are creating issues for users today.
  • Google Drive, Google Docs, Google Meet and other applications that people generally use for remote work are facing problems.
  • Google is continuing to investigate the issue and will provide an update shortly.
Google Drive, Docs, Meet, Keep, Voice, Group, Chat along with Gmail were out of order for over six hours today starting at 10:00 am. The tech giant has confirmed that all of its services are up and running again but has not offered an explanation as to what went wrong.

Earlier it noted that there were, “Gmail sending issues. Meet recording issues. Creating files issues in Drive. CSV user upload issues in Admin Console. Posting message issues in Google Chat. Sites adding new pages issues. Keep issues. Voice mail issues.” Gmail was the first service to take a hit. Users reported being unable to attach files to emails, or in some cases, being unable to send emails altogether.

Business Insider reported that Google Drive was also reporting issues alongside Gmail earlier today. The outages aren’t only in India but also in Australia, Japan and other parts of the world.


Gmail was also down last month for a couple of hours, but that was exclusively for users in India. In another instance, Gmail was down for much of the US east coast in April.

However, the last time that multiple Google services were down for thousands of users was back in March when YouTube, Gmail, and others had issues for a few hours.
