Gmail, YouTube and other related Google services are now working, after a brief outage reported in Pakistan and globally. It was an hour-long outage, according to Google.

“The problem with Gmail should be resolved for the vast majority of affected users. We will continue to work towards restoring service for the remaining affected users, but no further updates will be provided on the Google Workspace Status Dashboard. Please rest assured that system reliability is a top priority at Google, and we are making continuous improvements to make our systems better, ” it said at 5:52pm.

Many posted screenshots of an error when trying to access Gmail accounts. You Tube was also not opening.

A ping to the website earlier showed “Request Timed Out”, which means no connection with the Google server could be established. However, some reported that the search engine was working for them, and only services like Docs and Maps were not working.

TeamYouTube confirmed in their tweet that its services are back up.

Google saw a major outage in August, when several of its services were down for hours.

Google later said that it was an “authentication system outage for approximately 45 minutes due to an internal storage quota issue.”

This means that the authentication systems, which verify a user’s identity for security purposes before allowing them access to a service, such as Gmail, failed due to an internal storage issue.
