Gmail doesn’t seem to work for thousands of users around the world because they can’t send or receive emails despite being able to access the app.
According to Down Detector, nearly half of all Gmail users – about 1.5 billion people worldwide – have trouble receiving mail, while 37% report problems connecting to the site’s server.
At the same time, only 14% of users reported problems signing in to their Gmail accounts.
Users first began reporting outages around 10.50pm on Wednesday (April 27th).
It is unclear what led to the shutdown and when it will be eliminated.
Postal service users from all over the world flocked Twitter express your despair over the shutdown.
One of them wrote: “Now there are problems with Gmail? No one in our organization could send and receive emails about 30 minutes ago. The Workspace account and user accounts look fine.”
Another commented, “Surprisingly just noticed that all my Gmail accounts in custom domains have stopped working … is it just me?”
