A large outage affected multiple Google services around the World this morning (Monday 14th December 2020), including Gmail, YouTube, YouTube Music, Google Drive, Google Meet and more. Google’s streaming game platform, Stadia, was also down. Even the Google Play Store was not allowing downloads or payments to be made on the platform.
Google has since noted that, “most downed services including Gmail and YouTube are now returning to normal after this extended outage.”
A huge spike was reported on DownDetector at around 11:56am GMT (3:56am PT). Users experienced multiple issues when trying to access many Google services on mobile and desktop with notices such as “Something went wrong.” Gmail showed a “Temporary error (500)” notice. When trying to access the Google Assistant on smart speakers and Google Nest hardware you were met with a “there was a glitch, try again in a few seconds” message.
With millions across the globe relying so heavily on Google services and platforms such as G Suite and Gmail to operate, going down can be a costly issue.
