Gmail, YouTube and other Google services face global outage; back online

New Delhi: Google services, including YouTube and Gmail, went offline for about an hour Monday evening leaving a large fraction of internet users stranded.

The latest outage, which seems to be more intensive than the last one, seemingly started around 5 pm IST on Monday.

Google experienced an authentication system outage for approximately 45 minutes due to an internal storage quota issue. Services requiring users to log in experienced high error rates during this period. The authentication system issue was resolved at 4:32AM PT.

“All services are now restored. We apologise to everyone affected, and we will conduct a thorough follow up review to ensure this problem cannot recur in the future,” a Google spokesperson told.
