The apparent problem seemed to affect users from nations like the US, Japan, Malaysia, Australia, and Japan.

The G Suite Status Dashboard notes that Gmail and Google Drive users are seeing a lot of "error messages, high latency, and/or other unexpected behavior". We will provide more information shortly.

Google said Wednesday, March 13, that Gmail and Google Drive were suffering from an outage affecting multiple countries.

After clicking "send" on an e-mail, some users are receiving this pop-up message: "Oops, something went wrong".

After checking the internet connection, however, it's clearly not a network issue.

Some users affected by the outage claim that they are not able to send or receive emails.

Many users in Australia, the US, Europe and Asia had earlier reported outages with Gmail, Google Maps, and Google Drive, The Guardian reported. In a statement, Google too has acknowledged the issue. But if there's a project or deadline assignment you need to send right away, and Gmail is your only e-mail account, you'll have a flawless excuse as to why you didn't get it on time.

While the current disruption was limited to certain Google services, the January outage had taken down majority of Google's consumer-facing products, including Google Calendar, Google Drive, Google Docs, Sheets, Slides, Google Groups, Hangouts, Hangouts Chat, and Google+.
