Google’s services went down for about an hour Monday in a huge outage that restricted many people from watching YouTube videos, accessing their Google Docs or sending email on Gmail.
The outage also made Google Classroom temporarily unavailable, denying many students learning remotely from accessing their classes.
A little after 8 am ET, most of Google’s services came back online. The company’s workspace status dashboard had been red across the board, with every single Google service indicating an outage. Later Monday morning, they turned green, indicating that they’re operating normally.
“We apologize for the inconvenience and thank you for your patience and continued support,” Google said in a statement.
Google said it will work toward restoring its apps for the remaining people who are still unable to access them, but the problems should largely be resolved.
Downdector reported that millions of users were denied the usage of google and its apps.
Internet services fail due to number of reasons like incorrect installation, server errors etc. The most recent outage took place in September for Google.
