The Google apps status page just updated to confirm they’ve received reports of an issue with Gmail and Google Drive, while a quick look at Twitter or on DownDetector shows thousands of reports over the last hour or so.

I’ve been able to send emails but trying to attach a file shows a slow upload process that, if it completes, eventually leads to an error message saying that I need to check my network.

Oh, and if things weren’t bad enough for remote workers on this shift, it looks like Slack is having some issues too.

Update (2:14 AM ET): Google’s status page says they are continuing to investigate the issue. It has also updated to indicate reports of problems with Google Meet, Google Voice, and Google Docs, while anecdotal reports show people are having issues uploading to YouTube as well.

Google: 8/20/20, 1:29 AM We’re investigating reports of an issue with Gmail. We will provide more information shortly.
