On the 20th of August, Google confirmed the down server of its email service, Gmail globally.
The confirmation from Google came after many users across the global complained of the down and slow server through Twitter.
Users facing issues tagged Google and posted their issues through the fastest social media platform, Twitter.
Down Detector also showed that the number of complaints have been increasing since around 10:00 A.M.
Some users say they are unable to send emails, while others say they’re having trouble working because of the issue. Some users have also said the problem is with sending attachments, which are uploading very slowly.
The outage seems to be worldwide at this point, though there are still some who have said the platform is working for them.
The Google Apps status page has also updated saying they have received these complaints and will be providing a follow-up by 1:30 P.M.
The Twitter message by Google read “We are continuing to investigate this issue. We will provide an update by 8/20/20, 1:30 P.M., detailing when we expect to resolve the problem.”
The reason behind the sudden down server is yet to be identified.
The platform is important for most users right now, since almost everyone is working from home and mails are one of the few ways of communication.
Google experts are trying to resolve the matter and are likely to update about the issue soon.
Stay tuned for further updates.
