So far, about 47 per cent of the complaints are difficulty in sending emails.
Internet titan Google's e-mail service Gmail and its cloud storage service Google Drive were experiencing widespread disruption on Wednesday (March 13), with users complaining that they were unable to access files or send e-mails with attachments.
Google said it was aware of "an issue with Google Drive" starting at 7:53 p.m.
Google has issued a statement at 1:53pm saying, "We're investigating reports of an issue with Gmail". We'll be updating the post when we learn out more. "Check your network and try again", is the message that these users said comes while sending email. "Message could not be sent".
It looks like these services are down for some users globally.
Drive users will find it hard to upload and download files. But if there's a project or deadline assignment you need to send right away, and Gmail is your only e-mail account, you'll have a ideal excuse as to why you didn't get it on time.
There's now no word on what's causing the issue or how long it might take to resolve. This story will be updated as more information comes in.
