Google services hit by partial outage

New York - Google is experiencing a small outage of some of its popular applications such as Gmail and Google Drive, the search engine said on Wednesday.

The company disclosed on its website that six of its 13 applications were having partial status disruptions.

Last week Google announced welcome news for anyone who has ever experienced the horror of sending an email to the wrong person.

The issue with Gmail, for example, is affecting less than 0.007 percent of Google Mail users, who cannot access their accounts.

Google said in a response to a request for comment that it is currently investigating the issue and will post the cause once the investigation is complete.

“For everyone who is affected, we apologise - we know you count on Google to work for you and we're working hard to restore normal operation for you,” Google said. - Reuters
