Bloomberg reported on December 16 that Google said that “a large number of users” could not use Gmail normally, which was one of the Internet giant’s most popular services for the second consecutive day. Alphabet, Google’s parent company, said that at 5:44 p.m.
New York time on Tuesday, the service of some users has been restored, and the email system is expected to return to normal for all users “not long”.
On Monday, Google services, including Gmail, YouTube and Google Drive, experienced a large-scale downtime worldwide, which made users unable to use it normally, affecting users in many countries and regions around the world.
The company subsequently tweeted that its verification system was interrupted for about 45 minutes due to internal storage quota problems, and “all services have been restored now”.
