Google was down for an hour today that had an impact on many of its services. These include Gmail, YouTube, Drive, Maps, Docs among others. The brief disruption barred users to access the platforms as well as the company’s smart home platform Nest. Other services that also suffered the disrupt are Discord and Pokemon Go.
The Google outage majorly affected the US, India, and Europe
Majority of the complaints were about users not being able to log in to their accounts. However, some users were able to use YouTube in the incognito mode in Chrome. This suggested that the outage did not impact the services, but Google accounts instead.
