Gmail, Google Drive & Other Google Services Go Down


Having problems accessing Gmail, Google Drive, Google Docs, and other Google services this morning? Don’t worry — you’re not the only one. Google is currently suffering a partial service outage which is making these service inaccessible for some users, but the company assures us that it is working on resolving the issues as quickly as possible.

We don’t know the cause of the outage just yet, but some users are receiving the following message when they attempt to access certain Google services:

Sorry, there seems to be a problem. The service you’re looking for is temporarily unavailable. We’re working hard to restore your access as soon as possible. Please try again in a few hours. Thanks for your patience.

The Next Web reports that problems first started with the Admin control panel API at around 8:20 a.m. PT, then hit Google Mail and Google Drive around 40 minutes later. Google Documents then went down at around 9:11 a.m., while Google Spreadsheets and Presentations suffered the outage at around 9:12 a.m.

Google Chat is also experiencing issues for some.

Google is yet to confirm what’s causing the issues, or indeed when they might be fixed. But as soon as we hear anything, we’ll let you know.
