Google - 05I was just about to forward a document to one of my colleagues a few minutes ago using Gmail, and I was getting some error notifications.

Apparently, I’m not the only one. Users are experiencing an outage not just in Gmail, but also on YouTube as well when uploading videos.

Some users can’t even login with their Gmail accounts and some cannot upload files into the cloud. DownDetector, a third-party web monitoring firm indicates that reports started coming in around 4:40 GMT.


Google has acknowledged the problems and is now conducting an investigation. Are you having these problems too? let us know in the comments!
