Google Docs

Users of some Google apps affected after apparent outage

It is the second time in recent weeks that Google Docs users have been left frustrated by glitches in the system.

The internet is now expressing outrage over the fact that Google Docs is now down.

Google Docs went down for quite a big group of users, according to Google - the Gizmodo Australia office were affected by the outage, too.

"The problem with Google Docs should be resolved", the tech giant said.

Many users had previously said they received 502 error messages when trying to load the popular word-processing service.

The first report today from Google on this issue included the standard fare: "We're aware of a problem with Google Docs affecting a significant subset of users".

Hours before his death, the rapper posted a video on Instagram plugging the live show. "I was very reclusive and depressed. Not lil peep ", with a broken heart emoji, adding, "There's something about this that hurts a little bit more.

In a statement, Google later explained that the issue was due to "a code push that incorrectly flagged a small percentage of Google Docs as abusive, which caused those documents to be automatically blocked", and that access had been restored.

"The problem with Google Docs should be resolved", the company wrote in an update.

According to, the problem was mostly experienced by users in the United States, although the problem did occur outside of business hours for most businesses in Europe.

At the time of writing, Google Docs is back up and running as usual. "We apologize for the inconvenience and thank you for your patience and continued support". Sorry for this disruption and thanks again for your patience with us.

"Please rest assured that system reliability is a top priority at Google and we are making continuous improvements to make our systems better", the G Suite Status Dashboard page stated. All to say, that's a lot of folks relying on Google Docs to do everyday tasks.
