Not the best start to the week. Early Monday morning, the vast majority of services managed by Google, including Gmail and YouTube, were shut down for customers in several markets. A quick glance at Downdetector reveals that Google Drive, Maps, Nest, Calendar, Classroom, Meet, Hangouts, Stadia, Duo, and YouTube TV have also been affected. Unsurprisingly, people have taken to social media and other non-Google services for comment on their inability to respond to emails and be generally productive. Google has yet to respond, and we’ve reached out to the company (not through Gmail, of course) for a statement explaining the cause of the outage.
