Gmail Down: Google Working On A Fix, Doesn’t Specify Reason For Outage
Gmail is still down in several parts of the world, with users complaining of issues like inability to log in, add attachments and receive messages.
Google, the operator of the world’s largest email service, said it is investigating the issue, but did not specify a reason for the outage. Earlier on Thursday, GSuite status dashboard, which provides performance information on various Google services, said the company is “investigating reports of an issue with Gmail".
In its latest update at 1408 hours (IST), the dashboard said, “Our team is continuing to investigate this issue.” According to the dashboard, services like Google Drive, Google Docs and Google Meet have also been affected.
Stating that it will provide an update shortly detailing when it expects to resolve the problem, Google said there is disruption in sending emails, Meet recordings, creating files in Drive and posting message in Google Chat, among others.
While the company did not specify details of how many users were impacted and their locations, data from DownDetector (which provides outage updates on various online platforms) showed users from various parts of the globe, including India, were affected. Users in various posts on DownDetector said they were facing issues around logins, adding attachments and receiving messages.
