Gmail, Google Drive, Docs and other services of the Mountain View giant are down for quite a few people. The reports have been multiplying for a few hours now, and although Italy seems little affected for the moment, it seems that the disservice is spreading rather rapidly in various parts of Europe, especially in the north.
Google has already said it is investigating the causes of the problem, but there is no more precise information yet. In particular, the problem seems to be related to loading content. Several YouTube users say they are unable to complete the upload of videos to post.
Among the services affected are:
Gmail, Drive, Docs, Meet, Groups, Chat, Keep, Voice, YouTube
But as we said the situation is still rapidly evolving. We will follow up and update as needed.
User reports indicate Gmail is having problems since 12:36 AM EDT. https://t.co/EsWw2oLYjH RT if you're also having problems #Gmaildown
