Many users worldwide are experiencing outages worldwide outage of several Google services including GMail, Google+, Google Hangouts and more over the last several hours. GMail service seems to largely be fully restored but it appears that service has yet to be restored to Google Hangouts on the east coast of the US.
With the Google+ outage YouTube comments are not working, and I have been unable to reach any of my Google Drive space all day long. GMail is back up on the east coast, but a friend in Oregon is reporting that its still down for him. Google has not stated a reason as to why the outage is occurring or what the cause is, but they are saying that it is temporary and service should be back to normal soon.
