Why was Google down? The reason behind global outage for Google services
Google was facing an outage for some users in India and several other countries as most of its services and apps have gone down. Google Contacts, Docs, Drive, Gmail, YouTube, and more are currently not working, prompting messages of error in India and more countries, including in Europe and the US. It should be noted that YouTube and other services are working fine if you open them in incognito mode. YouTube recently faced a major outage for a couple of hours early last month, and it appears that the video streaming platform is again the most hit in the outage.
Why was Google down?
The company blamed an ‘internal storage quota issue’ for the same. The outage lasted almost 45 minutes across all Google services with users unable to login. Most of the services are now back online.

Google’s Workspace Status Dashboard showed an outage for all services. In an official statement, a Google spokesperson said, “Today, at 3.47 AM PT Google experienced an authentication system outage for approximately 45 minutes due to an internal storage quota issue. Services requiring users to log inexperienced high error rates during this period. The authentication system issue was resolved at 4:32 AM PT. All services are now restored.
The Google spokesperson also said that the company will ensure that this problem doesn’t occur again in the future. “We apologize to everyone affected, and we will conduct a thorough follow up review to ensure this problem cannot recur in the future,” the spokesperson promised.
