It doesn’t seem to be affecting all users, as most of us here at TNW seem to be unaffected, but numerous users are still reporting issues on Twitter. Meanwhile, Google’s app status dashboard shows the outage is ongoing:
We’ll keep you updated as the service gets restored for everyone. Hopefully soon, we’ve got some work to do, and I’m sure you do too.
For everyone else – welp, guess it’s time to go home.
