Google's Gmail, Drive, YouTube and some other services suffer global outage


Gmail users in particular, will have difficulty "attaching or accessing attachments, as well as accessing and saving draft emails and sending emails".

Several Google users on Wednesday reported problems with accessing Gmail and other services in large parts of the world.

Gmail, in a a message posted on Google's GSuite Status Dashboard, said it was experiencing a "service disruption". We will provide an update by 3/13/19, 11:14 AM detailing when we expect to resolve the problem.

Affected users were unable to send emails, receiving an error message that said "Message could not be sent".

After checking the internet connection, however, it's clearly not a network issue.

Google Maps and Drive also experienced issues.

Down Detector's live outage map is showing that some of the worst hit countries at the present time include Australia, Indonesia, Malaysia, Japan and the United States.

Gmail has been having issues since around 1:50pm.

Google has not confirmed the cause of the outages or how long they would last. But if there's a project or deadline assignment you need to send right away, and Gmail is your only e-mail account, you'll have a flawless excuse as to why you didn't get it on time.
