Not the best start to the week. Around 6:29AM ET, the vast majority of Google-operated services, including Gmail and YouTube, went down for customers in multiple markets. A quick glance at Downdetector reveals that Google Drive, Maps, Nest, Calendar, Classroom, Meet, Hangouts, Stadia, Duo and YouTube TV have been affected, too. Most of these outages have also be confirmed on Google’s own Workspace Status Dashboard. Unsurprisingly, people have taken to social media and other non-Google services to comment on their inability to answer email and generally be productive. Google has yet to respond, and we’ve reached out (not via Gmail, of course) for a statement explaining the cause of the outage.
