Gmail outage news: Users still not able to add attachments to Gmail, others complain Google Drive, Google Docs, Google Meet, etc not working
On Wednesday, users of Google’s emailing service Gmail suffered a worldwide outage. Some Google users reported that along with Gmail, their Google Drive, Google Docs and other Google services were also not responding. Some even had problems conducting a meeting with Google Meet.
Thousands of Gmail users took to social media to complain about the outage in the service, with #Gmail becoming the top trend on Twitter. Google in its status page said the Gmail service has been restored for some users. “Gmail service has already been restored for some users, and we expect a resolution for all users in the near future. Please note this time frame is an estimate and may change,” it said.
Some users, including us, are still facing problems when adding attachments to Gmail. When users try to add an attachment, the file/image/video just fails to attach. It’s unclear what caused the issue right now and why Gmail is down, but it has caused troubles for many. Some users say they are unable to send emails, while others say they’re having trouble working because of the issue. Some users have also said the problem is with sending attachments, which are uploading very slowly.
This was the second time in two months that Gmail suffered such a massive outage. In July this year, Gmail services went down for hours for users in India.
It may be a while before all Gmail services come back to normal but there is another issue creeping up on social media. Twitter is now not showing the attached tweets. The Twitter bug started just minutes ago and just shows the Twitter URL instead of the attached tweet. Reloading the entire Twitter page or refreshing the launching of the Twitter App cures the bug.
