Google services such as Gmail, Play Store, Google Cloud, Meet, and Drive seem to be affected for some users, who are unable to access them and send emails, download apps, etc. Many of the affected users complaining on Twitter about the issue say it is limited to just Airtel broadband and mobile network in India, though other countries also seem to be affected by this outage. According to IsTheServiceDown.in and DownDetector.in, the issue started around 3:30pm IST. The official Gmail handle on Twitter said it is aware of the problem and is working to fix the issue. However, no official reason for this outage has been given by Google yet.
