Lagos, Nigeria

Google services are down, including Gmail, Drive and YouTube

Google services are experiencing a total failure

According to DownDetector, the service disruption have barely begun less than an hour ago, but the number of reports have easily exceeded 2000 already.

Of course, not only Google is down, but its services are as well, including Google Drive and Gmail.

Those using Google Drive are met by an error code 500, an error message that we’ve covered before in this step-by-step guide.

Gmail users have even more problems, since they are met with a variety of error messages, all of which were also covered in the articles below:

Lastly, those of you looking for some online multimedia entertainment will also have to wait it out, since YouTube has also been affected by this total Google collapse, so don’t be surprised if you encounter the Something went wrong error.

Google and YouTube had a similar outage back in August, and the outage lasted for several hours.

This occurrence does nothing more than to remind us of how dependent we are of Google as a service, especially now in the context of a global pandemic when Internet use is higher than ever before.

Unfortunately, no word has come out yet from any Google official regarding the issue, but we hope that it will be short-lived.

How have you been affected by Google‘s services being down? Let us know by leaving us your messages in the comments section below.
