"The affected users are able to access Gmail, but are seeing error messages, high latency, and/or other unexpected behavior".
The company said at around noon that Gmail users began reporting having trouble both attaching and accessing attachments, saving email drafts and sending emails. This story will be updated as more information comes in. Google Drive is a file storage and share service.
The cloud platform had been hit by a litany of issues over the past few days, including an outage affecting Google Cloud Console yesterday.
"We apologize for the inconvenience and thank you for your patience and continued support".
"Woohoo - loving not being able to access any of my files", one man tweeted.
Although the service still appears to be up for many users, the outage is widespread. AussieOutages logged up to 2822 reports with Gmail and 118 reports with Drive.
According to the report, they shared that people are unable to send out emails using their Gmail accounts. When trying to send an e-mail, instead of delivering the message, users receive the notice "Message could not be sent. Check your network and try again".
There have also been reports of Google Drive being down.
They came from United States, Australia, Singapore, New Zealand, Canada and 55 more countries.
