Google Had A Huge Outage This Morning

Google had a huge outage this morning

The Main Point

Google had a huge outage this morning, and it was one of the largest that I have ever seen. Almost all of Google’s services, if not all of them, were down, and you couldn’t use any of them. Thankfully, this was a very short outage. It only lasted a few minutes. I hope that there isn’t another huge outage soon.

Google is one of the largest companies in the world. They are so large that most people use at least one of their services everyday. So, when they have a service wide outage, it is a huge deal. Well, this morning, they did. It was insanely annoying. I don’t think that I have ever seen this bad of an outage when it comes to the amount of things down. I hope that this doesn’t happen again anytime soon.

What services went down?

If you either experienced this outage first-hand, or are just interested in it, you probably wonder how many of Google’s services went down. Well, that is the worst part of this whole outage. Every single one of Google’s services went out, causing problems for tons of people. This includes YouTube, Google ClassroomGoogle DocsGoogle Play and even Google Chrome. There were many other services down, but those are just a few examples. The fact that the play store was down also caused many people to not be able to download an alternate browser. I was trying to find some news to write about today when this happened, and it ended up being my news story. But, it was still extremely annoying.

How long did the outage last?

Thankfully, this outage was very short. In all, the outage was only about 20 minutes long. This means that it was annoying and messed up some peoples schedules, but it wasn’t too much of a problem. I am very thankful for the fact that this outage was short, because I might not have been able to write an article today. This doesn’t mean that there won’t be future outages, though. The fact that Google even had an outage this large means that there can be other outages soon. About a month ago, there was a YouTube outage, and that isn’t a good sign. I really hope that there aren’t more outages, but there always can be.
