A website outage for an hour, not all that bad. Google suffering a worldwide outage across most of their services, from Docs, to YouTube, Gmail, Assistant, and so much more, is a near disaster. That happened this past week, and while people could access the free services, imagine all those who rely on it for business purposes? When we rely upon it in so many ways, known and unknown, what does that say about the power?

Multiple Google services and websites including YouTube, Gmail, Google Assistant, and Google Docs have been hit with a widespread outage. DownDetector indicates that the outage appeared to start at around 6:40AM ET.
