Users faced temporary outage with Google Services

/ 4 years ago

Just few hours ago, a lot of people reported via twitter that their Google services such as Gmail, Docs, Google Drive, Play Store and even Google chrome did not work.

The issue happened with both standard and Enterprise users with the Chrome browser reporting sync errors and crashing just after that. Many people shared the temporary fix that disabling Chrome’s sync solves the problem and it did. Then after sometime, multiple users claimed that they weren’t able to use their Google services properly.

This wasn’t the first time that Google had an outage this year with the last major outage with Google included up to 35 million users being  affected and many were left unable to access their personal email accounts, and in some cases, their Google App-powered email accounts.
