Everything Google is Struggling at the Moment… (Updated)

It’s not you, it’s Google.

The dashboard is showing all things “green,” though. That is clearly wrong.

Update 11:19AM:  We have orange for Gmail!

Update 11:22AM:  Gmail is now sort of back. Can login to accounts, struggling with multiples, though. Contacts hating life. Hangouts won’t sign-in at all.

Update 1:00PM:  Gmail seems to mostly be up now after an hour or so of frustration. Everyone good?

We are seeing issues with Gmail, Google Apps, Hangouts, Google+, and more. Will update this post as things come back online.

  • Lance Blaise

    Google+ is not working for me…

  • Boom

    So glad I’m migrating my clients to Google Apps this weekend. If they are down on Monday I’m screwed.

  • wmsco1

    Google is implementing their new encryption servers. NSA just pulled the plug on meta data. China just pulled all the Internet to their servers. Or we have been Hacked. A new Update just sounds to simple.

  • Justin Larmay

    I rooted my nexus 5 today. First time ever rooting. After I was done I tried installing an app and couldn’t get it to work. Thought I messed something up.. Scary.

  • huskerhog

    Google Play is VERY slow to refresh form screen to screen.

  • MistaButters

    I had just activated my RMA’d Nexus 5 and I thought that is why everything went to hell. Glad I checked here before I started restoring my phone and starting the process over.

  • coolsilver

    Gmail first then my google music stopped playing… ugh.

  • KingofPing

    Google music, however…still going strong.


  • NeilOMalley

    This is the link for the status of Google Apps.


  • joejoe5709

    IT Department. Have you tried turning it off and an again?

    Lol. This would have been the perfect time to disconnect, enjoy a moment of unplugged life, and drink a cold one. But I just spent the last hour trying to fix something that was unfixable. Lol.

  • paul_cus

    Thought the HTC One I’m borrowing was janky. Turns out Google is just having a bad day.

  • jzwerlz43

    im having issues with google play music. i recently bought a new album i wanted to store on my phone and it keeps giving me a “cant download right now error will try again later” been happening for 2 days now and its taken a few of the albums i already had stored on my sd card and un-stored them…..ugh

  • AbbyZFresh

    Looks like the NSA is taking its sweet time updating that new software into Google’s network. They better hurry up because i have emails to check for my package today.

  • duke69111

    I’m having problems with google voice off and on. It will send a text one minute and not the next.

  • Brady

    I warned you all and you wouldn’t listen!!! The Googpocolypse is upon us!!! Pray to whom you will for the time of the Googpocolypse has arrived.

  • Scottyb112

    Everything seems to be working fine over here

  • No problems here in the UK. Must be a US thing.

  • Street View is non existent on any device

  • sean carey

    I was uploading a video to YouTube last week, and it stopped working while uploading. I cant even get into my upload section now (YouTube crashes everyime). Someone else have this issue? Anyone able to get YouTube to STOP SCREWING ME??? haha – but seriously

    • Robert Macri

      clear the cache? if that doesn’t work clear the data and re sign in

      • sean carey

        clear data worked. thank you sir

  • Comk4ver

    I was wondering what server error on the app store was

  • Matthew Rebmann

    I’ve been using All Access for the last 2 hours and haven’t had any issues. Even checked for updates on the Play store and is was loading fine. Wonder if this is isolated to specific apps or areas?

    Edit: Gmail is working seemingly fine for me too. I’m in NYS

    • Robert Macri

      Same here… never experienced any issues on phone nor on the computer.

  • HeLLkAt31

    I was trying to watch
    The Droid Life Show: Episode 47 on YouTube from Chrome. It works fine on Windows Explorer. I will watch it there.

  • Malcolm Love

    I was wondering why my music stopped streaming on my laptop. Luckily I have some saved on my phone.

  • dazz1996

    Now my chorme book is not working I my have got scroogled

  • normmcgarry

    Phew…. I thought it was World War III. Turns it’s just Google down. Can’t decide which is worse.

  • JWil

    All seems fine now, a little slow, but working….

  • Curtis

    Google is completely down and out for me still.

    • JWil

      Possibly still cached?

      • Curtis

        Back online.

        That could have been my problem, but I let it sit while working on something and I finally connected (after 10 mins). Thanks for the reply.

  • Mondo

    Best part is the the team that makes sure google doesn’t go down was doing an AMA on Reddit!

  • burkett375

    My Gmail is fine, but can’t buy music from Play….I guess it’s a pirate’s life for me! jk

  • John Jenness

    Device Manager…nope.

  • monkey082506

    Play Music is screwing up as well

    • panicswhenubered

      Mine is playing music, but no custom playlists and no album art at all.

    • dragonflyr

      ALL my music is gone. Not good.

  • Zach B.

    Ooooo. Someone is SO getting fired.

  • Troy Henderson

    I litterally was in the process of formatting my phone, and reloading everything. None of the apps would download, talk about freakin bad timing.

    • Liderc

      Don’t you hate when that happens lol, start freaking out about nothing.

      • KingofPing

        A few days after I unlocked/s-off/rooted my HTC One: No signal. None. Everyone else in my family was working just fine.

        I about died…

        Turns out carriers don’t all share towers…even in Rural areas. My family was all still on VZW, who’s tower was still standing.

        T-Mobile’s tower…not standing. Took ’em about 12 hours to get it back and working. Heart attack-city until I’d figured that out though.

    • joejoe5709

      Ooooooo that would be scary. And annoying.

  • Its all back here in NH

  • Jo

    I guess it takes about 15 minutes for the NSA to install a network tap…

    • michael arazan

      More like 15 seconds, depending on their keyboard skills

  • yodatom10

    got this lovely message once i got gmail to load 🙁

    Contacts temporarily unavailable

    Your contacts list is temporarily unavailable, which may result in a few issues:

    Auto-complete may not work.

    The contact manager may not load.

    Chat won’t work.We’re working to fix the problem, and in the meantime, you should be able to continue to read and send mail as normal. Thank you for your patience.

  • Mondo

    Wooo! My email is back up!
    *edit* Nevermind… got that error again.

  • Jeremy Martin

    Is the world still spinning? I do not remember a time without Google! Should i go to the store and get the milk and bread?

  • hfoster52

    The moment the Earth stands still…

  • redbar0n11
    • Ej McCarty

      jesus christ I’m sick of people overusing memes and especially out of context….

      • Philip J. Fry


        • Ej McCarty

          It’s not so much about them being overused, just when they are completely unrelated and not funny at all. I love when memes fit the article perfect and actually make me laugh, but putting one there that’s not funny at all for the sake of putting one is just stupid.

          • Chris

            who let the kids out of school?

          • Philip J. Fry

            The same people that said it was ok to let you out of the mental hospital.

    • Philip J. Fry
      • Ej McCarty

        That only applies to redbaron’s sex life.

        • redbar0n11

          Oooh. Ouch. Sting. Burn.

  • yodatom10

    its back

  • ToddAwesome

    Annnnnnnnnd….we’re back!

  • Blue Sun

    I’m back into Gmail.

  • yodatom10



  • middlehead

    Maybe they’re fixing whatever it is that’s made every email I’ve gotten in the last two days show up as Important.

    • yodatom10

      there’s no reason to take drive, plus, hangouts etc with it 🙁

  • Jake

    Google goes down one every few months, just like my wife.

    • Tom_Cullen

      i haven’t had that problem with your wife at all.

      • Jake

        I set them up…

        • panicswhenubered

          Plot twist: “Jake” is actually Jackie, a post-op gender change patient. “Jake’s” wife is actually a guy.

      • Ej McCarty

        I have a hard time returning the favor with that huge bush of hers.

    • markgbe


    • MistaButters

      Once every few months?! That sucks. (pun not intended, but appreciated)

    • Chewy789

      Is that you Jake from State Farm?

      • Brandon Golway

        She sounds like a man!

        • michael arazan

          She sounds hideous

  • crazed_z06

    Glitch in the Matrix?

  • Chris VanAnden

    Ha, I came here to see if it was just me!

  • viewthis66


  • yodatom10

    gmail is now marked as being a total outage on the dashboard 🙁

  • John Legere
  • housry23

    I couldn’t get the Play Store on my browser to load either.

  • ToddAwesome

    Checked the Google Dashboard first, everything was supposedly fine. I KNEW the DL community would give me the information I needed!

  • Nathan Borup

    google owes me $50 now…

    • Nathan Borup

      apparently that was a bad joke…

  • sparty569

    Funny thing is http://www.isitdownrightnow.com/mail.google.com.html says it’s up, which is a lie.

    • Scott

      But below that it says over 100 users reported service disruptions.

    • isitdownrightnow.com is down right now ! At least for me it doesn’t load, maybe everyone went there to check if Google is down…

  • Scott

    Yeah I figured when I couldn’t log into my Google accounts…

  • JohanV

    wow end of world. such dissapoint. very.

    • Mondo

      aw yissssssss

  • yodatom10

    these are the days i regret storing my whole life on google i have access to absolutely nothing 🙁

    • BSweetness

      True story.

    • Big_EZ

      One more reason not to let go of my microSD slot, or large storage.

  • Erroll Abrahamian

    Ha, came here to check on this very thing!

    • Robert Boluyt

      Me too. Damn apps weren’t updating. :/

      • Erroll Abrahamian
