An ongoing issue with Google’s servers has brought down many of the company’s cloud services, leaving millions of users without access to their data.
Multiple services including YouTube, Gmail, Google Drive, Google Docs and Google Photos are all currently affected.
As of now, the popular service tracking site, DownDetector , reveals a huge spike in Google problems starting at around 6:40 am ET today.
The cause of the outage is not yet known and Google’s own workspace status dashboard currently shows all services as working normally.
