Google Drive, Google Docs, Google Sheets and Google Slides were all experiencing trouble on Monday evening. This was confirmed by the Google’s app status dashboard, which showed them in the red.

“We're investigating reports of an issue with Google Drive. We will provide more information shortly. The affected users are able to access Google Drive, but are seeing error messages, high latency, and/or other unexpected behavior. Affected user are unable to create new documents,” the app status dashboard showed. This was updated at 7:06 pm.

“Google Docs encountered an error. Please try reloading this page, or coming back to it in a few minutes,” a message reads when users attempt to access the site.

In December, Google-owned services including Gmail and Google Docs suffered a major outage in India and several other countries. Google Meet and Google Play were also inaccessible for some users. A large number of YouTube users found problems in accessing the site and watching videos when they were logged in. Log-in issues were also reported by some users.

Apart from India, services were in many other parts of the world including parts of Europe, the US and more.

Google was earlier hit by a significant outage in August 2020, which also took down its suite of online services and YouTube.
