There have been numerous outages of GMAIL, Google's well-known free email program, across the globe, including in India. According to the outage detection website Downdetector, platform services were interrupted for users all over the globe.
Notably, the site has returned and appears to be functioning again.

About 60% of users on the outage tracking website downdetector.com reported problems with the Google website, while 35% had difficulty logging in. Some users experienced a brief error when their accounts were briefly unavailable (500). Users posted information about the Google services' outage on Twitter.
On the other side, Google has not, as of this writing, released any formal statements concerning the outage. A number of memes, trolls, and views have been posted by users on Twitter in response to the outage.
It's interesting to note that Google also suffered a service interruption last week. The Internet Message Access Protocol had issues when syncing emails with Microsoft servers, affecting users of Gmail all over the globe (IMAP). Users of Gmail have complained about not getting texts and having issues syncing their Hotmail accounts.
The business said it was checking into the reports after acknowledging them. "Gmail sync problems are being caused by failed IMAP syncs with Microsoft servers. Currently, we think that the issue only exists for customers who synchronise their email with servers other than Outlook ""Google said."
Contrarily, other services The Teams, Microsoft 365, Outlook, and Azure services were all unavailable during a significant outage that affected providers like Microsoft. The business acknowledged the problem and claimed to have located it.
