Google services have suffered outages across the world with users unable to access Gmail, YouTube and Google Drive.


The outages appeared to have started around 1pm (Nigerian time), with Google applications returning server errors when visited.

According to Downdetector, and user reports, a number of Google platforms including YouTube, Gmail, Google Suite, and Google Maps are currently experiencing outages in the US, Europe, and many parts of the world.

An error on Gmail reads, “we’re sorry, but your account is temporarily unavailable. We apologize for the inconvenience and suggest trying again in a few minutes,” while YouTube’s homepage is showing a cartoon captioned with the words “Something went wrong…”


It, however, remains unknown if it is a problem with their servers, planned maintenance activity, or if the networks are under attack.

Reacting to the development in a short statement, the official Youtube help account wrote: “We are aware that many of you are having issues accessing YouTube right now – our team is aware and looking into it. We’ll update you here as soon as we have more news.”

Users have since taken to Twitter to complain that they encountered error messages any time they tried to access the affected services.
