YouTube has released a statement on the matter, according to ANI. “We are aware that many of you are currently having trouble signing in to YouTube. Our team is aware of this and is looking into it. We will keep you posted as soon as we have more news – the YouTube team.”
Major Google services, including Gmail and YouTube, are not available to millions of people around the world. Several have also complained about social media.
While Google Docs users see the message “Google Docs encountered an error. Try refreshing this page or come back in a few minutes”. YouTube simply displays its error page with a monkey and says “An error has occurred” with a search bar.
As for Gmail, the page says “Sorry, but your account is temporarily unavailable. We apologize for the inconvenience and suggest you try again in a few minutes. You can view the G suite status dashboard to see the current status of your service “.According to the down detector site, almost all of Google’s services seem to be affected. This includes Google Drive, Hangouts, Meet, Play, and Duo.
Google Maps users can open the page on a computer, but cannot log in to get personalized results. Based on the real-time outage map, the problem appears to be severe in the European region, while other countries such as India, Japan and parts of the United States are also affected.
The Android and iOS versions of these services are performing well at the moment.
