Outage hits Gmail users around world

Google's Gmail and Drive suffer global outages

The notice of the resumption of Google services comes as users of Facebook and its associated applications reported issues accessing the platforms.

"Gmail is having issues since 1.20pm EST (11.20am WST)", an advisory on the website said.

Gmail users in particular, will have difficulty "attaching or accessing attachments, as well as accessing and saving draft emails and sending emails". "The affected users are able to access Gmail, but are seeing error messages, high latency, and/or other unexpected behaviour". "Check your network and try again".

At around 12.44pm. Google posted an update to its Gmail and Google Drive G-Suite status dashboards acknowledging the issue.

Not all Gmail and Google Drive users are experiencing the outage, however.

Business Insider was not able to send an email to seek comment from Google.

Drive users will find it hard to upload and download files.

According to downdetector.com.au, almost 3000 users this morning reported problems logging in, using attachments or receiving messages.

The Gmail outage map at Down Detector shows problems around the world, with big red marks over the east coast of Australia, in Malaysia, Japan, India and yellow marks out outage around many other parts of the world. This issue was not confirmed by Google on its G Suite dashboard.

Are you also affected by the outage?

Hopefully, Google will quickly solve this issue. "Major issues everywhere", another user tweeted.
