Google on Thursday said Gmail services have been restored for some users. The email service had suffered an outage for over three hours this morning. Users in the US, India, Europe, and other parts of the world were affected.
“Gmail service has already been restored for some users, and we expect a resolution for all users in the near future. Please note this time frame is an estimate and may change,” said Google on its G Suite Status Dashboard.
It is worth noting that Gmail may still be causing errors to some users. Apart from Gmail, Google has also partially restored Drive, Docs, Meets, and other services that suffered an outage this morning. Google has categorized the issues as service interruption.
Google services, especially Gmail, suffered an outage around 11 AM this morning. Soon, users took to Twitter to share their grievances.
Most of the users had complained about facing issues with uploading an attachment. Some also complained about login errors as well as sending emails.
According to an updated report on the down detector, over 60% of users reported facing issues with uploading an attachment. The number of outage reports dipped about an hour ago.

Today’s outage is said to be one of the longest ever for Gmail. The email service had faced a similar outage in July.
