Taipei, Internet giant Google Inc. said Thursday night it had restored its many services that went down earlier in the day, including Gmail.
“The problem with some of our G Suite products should be resolved. We apologize for the inconvenience and thank you for your patience and continued support,” Google said in a statement issued around 7 p.m.
The company, however, did not say what had caused the large-scale crash, which began around 1:29 p.m. in Taiwan, with Gmail users complaining that they could not send emails.
Problems with the use of Google Drive, Google Chat, Google Meet, and other G Suite products were also reported. Google Meet had recording issues, while users were unable to create files in Google Drive.
In response, Google said it was investigating the issue and would resolve it as soon as possible.
By 7 p.m., all the services were up and running again, according to the company.
“System reliability is a top priority at Google,” it said. “We are making continuous improvements to make our systems better.”
