Google service abruptly went down on Monday evening, impacting hundreds of users. Among the services that were disrupted at the time of writing include Gmail, Google Search, YouTube, and Google Maps among others.
Google said the issue affected “a majority of users” and that it is working to fix the problem.
Gmail users were greeted with a “Temporary Error” message, stating: “We’re sorry, but your account is temporarily unavailable. We apologise for the inconvenience and suggest trying again in a few minutes. You can view the G Suite Status Dashboard for the current status of the service.”
YouTube and Gmail seem to have been worst hit globally, causing an uproar on Twitter about how Google services have left them high and dry especially on the first day of the week.

Despite the outage reports about all consumer Google products like Gmail and YouTube, the status page for Google services right now is showing no outage.
For some people, Google Search seems to be working fine while some users are reporting even Search is not working for them.
