Google failure: the search engine, Gmail, Calendar no longer work
Google is encountering a number of technical difficulties this morning. From 10 a.m., the reports multiplied on Down Detector. The concern seems to concern all of the Mountain View firm’s services, with a large majority for Agenda and a few for Gmail and the search engine.
Panic on board this morning at Google. If several of the firm’s services are inaccessible to you, you are far from being an isolated case. According to DownDetector, the blackout started around 10 a.m., time at which the reports were made en masse. For now, only Google seems to be concerned. Unlike the outage that hit Snapchat, Discord, Spotify and many other apps last month, the latter is apparently not widespread.
On the other hand, the problem appears to be large. Indeed, several applications are concerned. The majority of reports concern Agenda. On Twitter as on DownDetector, the online calendar is well ahead of its little comrades. That being said, many users also experience difficulties with other applications. The search engine in particular, as well as its Images section, no longer load on many devices.

Internet users are already enjoying the Google outage
The situation undermines the plans of professionals, who use Agenda to organize their schedules. Especially since for some, Gmail is also doing its own. In other words, it is impossible for many to work in these conditions. Which does not seem to displease everyone. “If Google Calendar is down for more than 15 minutes, you have the right to go home, it’s the law”, laughs a surfer on Twitter.
“If Google Calendar is down for 15 minutes, does that mean all meetings for the day are canceled? “, asks another. If there is little chance that his wish will be fulfilled, most likely the failure will disrupt the planning of many companies. A consequence similar to the OVH outage which impacted thousands of sites last October. Google has not yet communicated on the subject.
