The Verge - Mon Apr 12 13:54

Multiple Google services are currently experiencing outages, with some users unable to create new documents in Google Docs and Google Sheets. Google’s Workspace Status Dashboard is reporting that Drive, Docs, Sheets, and Slides are all experiencing service disruptions.

When trying to create a new document in Google Docs, the following error message appears:

Google Docs encountered an error. Please try reloading this page, or coming back to it in a few minutes.

Downdetector is currently showing spikes in issues with Google Drive, Google Classroom, and Google itself, though we’ve not encountered any issues on Google’s main search site. The outage appears to be occurring in multiple countries, if reports on Twitter are anything to go by, and we’ve verified problems are occurring in the UK and US.

Google is reporting partial outages across Drive, Docs, Sheets, and Slides.

There’s never a good time for an outage, but problems like this are particularly bad with so many people currently working and studying from home. Happy Monday, everyone.
