At this time the Gmail is down for many users around the world. As usual, the complaints quickly intensified in social networks, especially the flow of Twitter messages warning you that you can not access the Google webmail messages.
Here in the newsroom use Google Apps technology (one that is no longer free) for sending emails (a la Gmail), calendar, documents and more. It was impossible to access new files in Google’s cloud.
At least two computers writing (one running Windows and another running OS X from Apple) caught while trying to run Chrome. We also have people report using Ubuntu that saw the browser crashes. It may be, as it can not be that the failure on Google’s systems have affected the browser. Chrome allows you to log in with Google account to have favorites, user names and passwords synchronized.
I myself am using Mozilla Firefox, my second favorite browser, to write this article. There are other options, such as Internet Explorer and Opera.
Google provided the following statement regarding the failure around 15:35:
“WE’RE INVESTIGATING REPORTS OF AN ISSUE WITH GMAIL. WE WILL PROVIDE MORE INFORMATION SOON. ”
We are investigating the information and we will bring more details when we have them. The last time the service email went off the air last week, we saw that the status page of Google services reported the failure.
In a later note, Google says the following:
“WE APOLOGIZE FOR THE INCONVENIENCE AND APPRECIATE YOUR PATIENCE AND YOUR SUPPORT. REST ASSURED THAT SYSTEM RELIABILITY IS A TOP PRIORITY FOR GOOGLE, AND WE ARE MAKING CONTINUOUS IMPROVEMENTS TO MAKE OUR SYSTEMS BETTER.”
Then in your home / work is also without Gmail and other Google services? Tell in the comments – do not forget to inform the city and ISP.
