Google announced on through their official blog post that “Earlier today, most Google users who use logged-in services like Gmail, Google+, Calendar and Documents found they were unable to access those services for approximately 25 minutes. For about 10 percent of users, the problem persisted for as much as 30 minutes longer. Whether the effect was brief or lasted the better part of an hour, please accept our apologies—we strive to make all of Google’s services available and fast for you, all the time, and we missed the mark today.”
Google says the issue has been resolved and the services are back on track. They continued that we’re now focused on correcting the bug that caused the outage.
The outage was also reported by Yahoo’s official Twitter account simple says that “Gmail is temporarily unavailable.” Later Yahoo Tweeted an apology.
