Google down: Significant disruptions on Google in the near past

On August 8, 2022, Google was unavailable. Recognize the cause here.

We will also look at the other instances in recent memory where Google misbehaved.

We’ll also talk about how the Google outage affects millions of people’s daily lives.

On August 8, 2022, Google was unavailable for a while, and even if it was just for a short period of time, when it affected services like Google Search, Gmail, YouTube, Maps, Photos, etc., it was a major issue. Around 80 billion people visit the main Google Search website each month, which translates to an average of one million searches each minute. That is the scale that is being discussed here. You can now see how many people a Google outage might impact globally. It has happened before, though, so this isn’t unprecedented. We’ve recorded the several instances in which Google has said, “Aw, snap, that’s an error,” to us. Let’s start with the most recent.

Since 6:37 IST, Google has apparently been down, and by 7:07 IST, there had been over 41,000 complaints. This was brought on by a software upgrade. Users were getting Error 500 or 502.

Google apologized for the inconvenience and expressed remorse for the same. Our efforts promptly resolved the problem, and our services are now operational again.


The case is internally called Google Cloud Infrastructure Components incident 20013.

It was brought on by a constrained storage quota in Google’s automated storage management system that barred user login-required services. Services including Google Cloud Platform, Gmail, Calendar, Meet, Docs, and Drive purportedly stopped working for about 45 minutes at this time. A significant outage occurred in August 2020 as well, with Gmail taking the brunt of it.


Videos were browsable but not played during the 2020 incident. This had an effect on YouTube TV and YouTube Music in addition to the standard YouTube on all platforms.

However, when viewers attempted to watch YouTube on the web in 2018, they simply received a blank page. During this time, some users of the app were experiencing Error 503.
