Well, it looks like it’s going to be an interested day with Google Services down. Today, December 14th 2020, it appears a number of Google Services including YouTube, some Google Account functions, Google Drive, and “Backup and Sync from Google” aren’t functioning.
Update Dec 14th 2020 6:00AM MST: It appears services have been restored.
I first noticed this thismorning when I logged in to my computer. Backup and Sync from Google was signed out and asking me to sign in. Attempting to sign in presented the following error.
At first I thought there may have been some type of security issue, issue with my firewall, but after some brief investigation (thank you Twitter), I was able to identify it’s a very large interruption.
List of Google Services Down
As of right now, I’m seeing reports that the following services are down:
- Google Drive
- Google Gmail
- Some account services
- Backup and Sync from Google
While it’s easy to love cloud services, it’s not fun when they go down. I’ll update this post as I get more information.
