Users of some Google apps affected after apparent outage

Users of some Google apps affected after apparent outage

Many users had previously said they received 502 error messages when trying to load the popular word-processing service.

As of 4 p.m. EST, Google's G Suite Dashboard said there was "a problem with Google Docs affecting a significant subset of users", and that it would "provide an update by 11/15/17, 5:30 PM detailing when we expect to resolve the problem." .

Google Drive and Google Docs weren't working properly for some people on Wednesday afternoon. The moment was quite terrible for all the users who keep on depending on Google Docs for their daily routine work.

Google tweeted nearly an hour earlier that it was "actively investigating an issue with Docs not loading".




"The problem with Google Docs should be resolved", the company wrote in an update.

The disruption took place towards the end of the working day in the United States, leaving many employees, businesses and students, who rely on the service for its cloud computing functions for critical work, particularly frustrated. The company is working to fix the error but until it was fixed, those who were dependent on these products of Google started freaking out.

According to Downdetector.com, the problem was mostly experienced by users in the USA, although the problem did occur outside of business hours for most businesses in Europe. Users were also taking to Twitter to complain about the outage and inquire about whether they were the only people experiencing the problems. Sorry for this disruption and thanks again for your patience with us.

At the time of writing, Google Docs is back up and running as usual. Google says it's already restored service for "some users" and that it expects a full resolution "in the near future". The company apologised for the disruption.
