Outage hits Gmail users around world


Earlier in the day, it had posted at around 10.53am to say that users were reporting "error messages, high latency, and/or other unexpected behaviour". "Check your network and try again".

"Users will have issues accessing or attaching files in various products", it said, adding that the cause was being investigated.

After clicking "send" on an e-mail, some users are receiving this pop-up message: "Oops, something went wrong". The e-mail does not send, but it saved as a draft. Gmail has more than one billion active users globally.

Google hasn't released an official statement yet but is responding to individual users on social media. Not only that, some people have reported that they are unable to download attachments which came with their emails.

An outage is affecting Gmail and Google Drive users around the world.
