Google’s Massive Outage Sends Millions Offline

An issue with Google’s servers that brought down many of the company’s cloud services left millions of users without access to their data on google platforms.

Multiple services of Google including YouTube, Gmail, Google Drive, Google Docs and Google Photos were all down within mid-morning  to midday on December 14.

Downdetector, a service that registers complaints about unavailable internet services, showed tens of thousands of people had been unable to use Google and its apps.
Internet services fail from time to time for a variety of reasons: server errors, incorrectly installed maintenance routines or a host of other potential goofs and glitches. Google’s most recent major outage took place in September, when Google Docs went down for several hours.
