Another Day, Another Google Outage

Another Day, Another Google Outage

Google users everywhere might be experiencing yet another Google outage largely in the United States on Monday, August 19. The major areas affected appear to be East cities, such as New York and Boston. Across the country on the West coast isn’t safe either. According to the Down Detector, it looks like San Francisco and Los Angeles are down too.

Where the Reports Come from

Most of the reports have been about people having trouble with logging into Google and Gmail, and Google Drive. Google’s G Suite App Status Dashboard also shows some issues with Gmail and the Admin Console as well. In a society where we have instantaneous access to any sort of online apparatus, Google experiencing an outage comes at an inopportune time–and this is far from the first time this has happened.

Not the First Time

Just a few months ago on June 2, 2019, Google underwent one of the worst outages of all time. YouTube, Snapchat, Gmail, Nest, Discord, and a number of other web services fell victim to issues with Google’s Cloud service that powered apps other than just Google’s own web services. Google blamed “high levels of network congestion in the eastern USA” for the issues. While accidents happen and no one can predict the future, Google should expect to always have high levels of network congestion. After all, it’s one of the most popular services in the world, so naturally people are going to take advantage of it. From protecting your home to checking your email, Google basically does it all.

What We Can Expect

Usually these outages don’t last too much longer than a few hours. If they lasted any longer, Google could have a riot on their hands. Thankfully, their system experts should have it up and running once again.

If you have experienced or are currently experiencing the outage, we would love to hear about your time with it. Leave a comment below so we can learn about your feedback of the whole situation.
