Gmail Down Around The World

Gmail_PNG_icon_512x512_px_size_by_ncrowGoogle Inc experienced a service outage on Friday that in brief took down Gmail, Internet email service that used by hundreds of millions of people and many businesses across the world.

Google, which first recognized the outage at 11:12 am Pacific Time (19:12 GMT), said nearly one hour later that service had been restored for several users and it expected “a resolution for all users in near future.”

It remained vague what triggered the outage, which influenced the users in at least Britain, India and the United States and prompted a flow of complaints on the Twitter from users in many other countries.

“We are investigating reports of a problem with Gmail. We will give more information shortly,” the company said on its “App Status” dashboard online, which tracks the state of different Google services.

Two further Google properties, the social network YouTube and Google Plus, appeared to load slowly too.

Yahoo Inc, which runs the rival Internet mail service, seized the moment to post screenshot of the Gmail error page to the Twitter.
Users of Google attempting to sign on saw a “temporary error” message and a short note: For Example – “We are sorry, but your Gmail account is temporarily unavailable. We apologize for the inconvenience/trouble and suggest you trying again in a few minutes.”
