Update: 11:30pm – Services have been restored.
Following plenty of reports in short succession, a quick check shows that Google services are down. This appears to be a major incident in that it’s not just web interfaces but appears to be a major incident of sorts with authentication affecting:
- Google Drive
- Google Docs
- Oauth sites using Google accounts
At this time, there is no acknowledgement of the issue from Google on their social media, but drawing plenty of attention.

Sadly, due to the authentication issues, there is no way to report it to them as a user either. There will undoubtedly be more to come in the next few hours, for Aussies though – time for bed and we’ll wake — hopefully — to fully restored services.
How has the developing outage from Google services affected you?
