As reported by a number of users on Twitter and server monitoring websites like DownDetector, it appears that a number of Google’s services are currently down for users.

One user on Twitter has reported that they are unable to access both Gmail or the Google Play Store.

“Google stuff is down. Gmail, Play Store. Yikes.”

Another user has reported their Google Nest services are not working either. This includes services such as Google Home and even being able to record with their Nest camera.

“Nest services are down right now as well. Camera recording, Google home, etc”

It is currently unclear what has caused the interruption to Google’s services, or when the company will be able to restore access for its customers.

Google said that a routing issue caused some servers to crash, bringing down a number of the company’s services, including Gmail, Nest, and many cloud clients like Doordash, for around 30 minutes.

Everything should be coming back up now.
