Google has been facing some issues since midnight today as users are unable to use Gmail, Google Drive and Google Drive properly. It all started when people across the world reported that they were not able to attach files to their emails.
In conversation with Digpu News Network, a Customer Executive at Google India said,” Yes, we are facing some issues in the Gmail, google meet and Google Drive. Our engineers are working to rectify the issue. It is expected to be resolved in a couple of hours.”
