Google Hangouts is Currently Down. (Updated)

Again, it’s not you, it’s Google.

Hangouts is currently down, though the apps status dashboard doesn’t reflect the situation.

Update 9:36AM:  Google has updated their dashboard to show that there is a service interruption. They are “investigating reports of an issue with Google+ Hangouts” and “will provide more information shortly.”

Update 10:38AM:  Hangouts, Voice, and Drive are coming back up for some. Hangouts is still out for us in our Google Apps account. Google says they will have more info to share at 11:15AM.

Update 11:11AM:  All back on our end. How are things for you?

Update 11:23AM:  Scratch that, we are still having issues with Hangouts.

Update 11:29AM:  Google had this to say on the situation – “Google+ Hangouts service has already been restored for some users, and we expect a resolution for all users in the near future. Please note this time frame is an estimate and may change.”

Update 12:27PM:  Things seem to be good around here. Finally all good for you?
