As for Gmail, the page says ‘We’re sorry, but your account is temporarily unavailable. We apologise for the inconvenience and suggest trying again in a few minutes. You can view the G Suite Status Dashboard for the current status of the service.’



According to downdetector website, almost all the Google services seem to be affected. This includes Google Drive, Hangouts, Meet, Play.



As of this writing, Google is yet to officially acknowledge the issue, and the status page for its services is reporting that none are experiencing issues. However, reports are mounting on Twitter as users can’t access its basic services, with Gmail and the hashtag “#YouTubeDOWN” starting to trend



Further details awaited.
