Gmail, YouTube, Google Drive, Google Docs, Maps, Adwords and Adsense, Google Pay, Google Home and Google’s Chromecast all come across interruptions, with dozens and hundreds of reports coming in from all over Europe. Countries like US, Canada, India, South Africa, Central and South America, Australia and more.
Downtime site indicators Showing large spikes For services starting from 11.30AM UK time.
Google.com seems to be working even though it is sluggish. Ditto Chrome.
Some are ised that this is a problem Google Accounts – It’s not working either – They do not work even if you try to sign in to Google services anonymously.
So far we have not seen any explanations for what is happening – if you know anything please stay in touch, I’m on Twitter Here And read direct messages and replies. No sense in sending me an email!
