No, it’s not just you: Google appears to be suffering a massive meltdown. Many users in Australia, the US, Europe and Asia reported outages with Gmail, Google Maps and Google Drive.

In a statement, Google said it was investigating reports of an issue with Gmail.

“We will provide more information shortly. The affected users are able to access Gmail, but are seeing error messages, high latency, and/or other unexpected behaviour,” the company posted on its service website.

Unable to send emails, several users received an error message: “Message could not be sent. Check your network and try again”.

Google Maps and Drive also experienced issues.

On its GSuite dashboard, Google first updated acknowledging the problem, which it said needs to be resolved. 

This is not the year’s first outage with Google services. A similar but brief outage had occurred in January affecting users living in parts of Europe, parts of North America, South America and Asia. Users all across the globe reported of a 404 error when they tried accessing the Gmail.
