Google services go down globally, social media users warn ‘apocalypse is finally happening’


Google has suffered an outage in the US and parts of Europe restricting internet users from accessing several of its services including email and YouTube on Sunday.


User reports said that Google services including YouTube, Gmail and Snapchat had been down since Sunday afternoon. The US has been apparently affected the most, but some services were affected even in India.

Gmail was not updating mails on Sunday night. The topic dominated social media conversations with users warning of the arrival of apocalypse.

Some news publishers reported that Google analytics and Google adsense too had stopped functioning. Google has not yet issued any statement. However, some services appeared to have been restored by Monday morning in India.
