Google Drive is down for many users around the world. While it’s working fine for some of us here at TNW, Twitter is ablaze with people complaining, and Google has acknowledged the outage.

Downdetector reports the outage began around 10AM EST, and it seems to mainly be affecting the United States and parts of Europe. Drive is either working slowly or not loading files, resulting in a 500 error.

Google says it’s looking into the outage. We’ll update this page when service returns, or you can keep track of Google’s system status dashboard. Or, you know, take the day off – we won’t tell.

Update 1:20PM ET: Service seems to be restored for most or all users. Carry on.
