Google Servers are down again. This is the peak of what we can expect to happen in 2020. It is not the first time of the year when Google has faced server outage or server downtime. Netizens have started trolling Google on social media with various memes and nut crackers.

Google Server Down : Why, How, and what all we know?

If rumours are to be believed, this may be a planned maintenance activity by Google or least probability of hackers getting into Google servers. If you have your company's important data and documents in Google's tools like Docs, Gmail, etc then no need to worry as Google follows high safety standards in terms of such irregular events.

Currently, the Google services which are affected include the following:-

  1. Gmail
  2. Youtube
  3. Google Maps
  4. Google Play Store
  5. Google Meet
  6. Google Drive
  7. Google Photos
  8. Google Ads

This, most probably will not last long, given Google's high reputation so if you are stuck with your work then just for some time for Google to be back on track

Basically the only part that went down was Google Accounts, which is, well, connected to everything Google provides. You could still access YouTube or other services while logged out.
Just hoping it was not a breach and no data was compromised.

If Google is free, then how is it among the wealthiest companies in the world??? It earns okay, either through you, or through ads or simply through shareholders.

rolleyes earn through shareholders

shareholders dont generate revenue

revenue generated by sales

which boosted by funding which shareholders provide
