An announcement on the Twitter account Google for Work says Gmail is 'experiencing a service-wide outage'

MANILA, Philippines – Workers around the world may have experienced some down time, as Google for Work appeared to have experienced a large outage on Wednesday evening, September 14. The outage affected email accounts using Gmail.

An announcement on the Twitter account Google for Work said Gmail was “experiencing a service-wide outage.”


 

The app dashboard during the downtime showed that it began at around 11:16 pm, Manila time. GMAIL DOWN. Screen shot from Google Dashboard.

The description on the report said the downtime only affected Google for Work Gmail users, with a redirect telling users the service was not available, advising Google for Work Gmail users to contact their administrator. 

In its latest update, Google said it has identified the root cause of the issue, and will implement a potential fix. While the service will hopefully come back online for everyone soon, some were understandably poking fun at the end of the world scenario a lack of communications might bring.
