Gmail is currently down for many users around the world. For several hours, Internet users have in fact encountered difficulties sending emails or connecting to their mailbox. Google quickly confirmed the existence of a large malfunction on its official website.
As we can see on the DownDetector site, Gmail is currently experiencing malfunctions all over the world. Since 8:30 am, testimonials from dissatisfied users have multiplied. The most affected regions are: Belgium, the Netherlands, northern France, Malaysia, Japan, Australia and India.
Google is still investigating the causes of the outage
On Twitter, there is no shortage of testimonials from Gmail users. “So #gmaildown great I have been trying to send emails since 7am this morning for my companies, none of them leave as soon as there is an attachment, it is very useful like that for work,” explains one user. In most cases, you cannot send an email with an attachment.
Many of us use Gmail on a daily basis. While some members have no issues with the mail client, others are unable to forward attachments either. A warning appears irretrievably on the screen. On the G Suite dashboard page, Google admits the existence of an outage. According to the firm, “service is disrupted”.
“We are currently investigating Gmail incident reports. We will provide you with more information as soon as possible “announced Google at 7:29 am. At around 10 am, the firm added: “We are continuing to investigate the cause of this problem. We will keep you informed by 08/20/2020 11:38 and let you know the expected timeframe for resolving the problem. ” We will update this article as soon as Google releases new information.
Other G Suite services, including Google Drive, Docs, Chart, Keep, Voice, Meet and Groups are also having difficulty, according to the Google site. For the record, this is not the first time that Gmail has encountered an outage. In January, many Internet users found themselves deprived of their mailbox for several hours.(Same story in 2013 when millions of emails were delayed).
Are you also having trouble sending emails? We await your testimony in the comments.
