YouTube And Gmail Experience Widespread Outages

Newsweek reports:

Several Google services appear to be suffering outages, with widespread issues hitting Gmail, YouTube, Drive and Hangouts.

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.” YouTube is also offline, with a warning that now reads: “Something went wrong…”

According to DownDetector, a platform that tracks reports about outages in real-time, the Google software problems appear to be taking place worldwide, but seem to be most prevalent in Europe and along the east coast of America.
