Google's services look to have returned at 12:30pm GMT - meaning that they were down for around 45 mins.

Google Crash?

Google and many of its services have been experiencing issues in recent weeks.

This, however, looks to be the first time that multiple platforms have crashed - including YouTube, Gmail and Google Docs.

When we tried to log in to Gmail (via Chrome) we received this message.

"400. That's an error."

"The server cannot process the request because it is malformed. It should not be retried. That's all we know."


There is a workaround to access YouTube, however, by going onto the site via an incognio tab.


However, this won't work for Gmail or Docs as you need to log in.
