  • The outage has affected the Google search engine, Gmail, YouTube and its cloud storage services

Internet tech giant Google has been hit by a worldwide outage of some of its key services including search, Gmail, YouTube, Calendar and its Drive cloud storage.

The first problems were reported at around 12.30pm Spanish time on their YouTube platform which then spread to other services including PlayStore and Google Meet.

The Downdetector website reports that the outage has caused problems all around the world although the internet giant has not said anything about it.

The Google services information panel does not show any problems despite the fact that practically all services have been down and not accessible.

The cause of the problem is unknown although it appears that services are slowly coming back online.
