Gmail Down For Users All Over The World

advertisement

It seems the most popular emailing client, Google Mail is currently down for many users all over the world. It does seem the platform is working for some users whilst some users can’t access the site.

Users trying to access the service are getting a 404 error:

Not everyone is affected

The outage doesn’t seem to be universal as I attempted to open my Gmail at the time of writing and I did so successfully. Gmail’s official Twitter account hasn’t acknowledged the downtime. Quite the contrary, they said there are no disruptions and urged a user to clear the browser cache and cookies. This seems to be working for some but for others, this won’t solve the problem. More confusingly, the official Gmail status page acknowledged the error and noted that they are working on a fix:

We’re aware of a problem with Gmail affecting a significant subset of users. The affected users are unable to access Gmail.

We will provide an update by 1/29/19, 12:50 PM detailing when we expect to resolve the problem. Please note that this resolution time is an estimate and may change.

Take note that the 12:50 PM is UK time (GMT to be precise) which means 2:50 PM local time. Are you also facing challenges using the Gmail app or site?
