Gmail users had trouble sending emails, adding and accessing attachments, and saving their drafts, while Drive users had problems uploading and downloading files.
Google’s YouTube was also hit by glitches but the service has been restored.
YouTube tweeted that videos are now playing without error messages, uploads are back to normal and issues with profile images as well as community posts should also be back to normal.
