Google Gmail and Drive: March 12
Major problems with Gmail and Google Drive were first reported just before 8 pm PT on the evening of March 12, followed by glitches affecting YouTube.
On its status page, Google said users were seeing "error messages, high latency, and/or other unexpected behavior."
Gmail users complained of problems sending emails. Google Drive users reported that certain files weren't opening, and that performance of the cloud storage solution was degraded. The outages lasted for roughly three-and-a-half hours.
