Shows How much we are dependent on Google

It shows clearly and alarming reminders of just how far reaches and how many of our services, productivity, entertainment, home, and utilities are tied up with a single proprietary provider. Coincidentally Microsoft outlook was facing the same problem also.

Not considerably more to refresh yet but rather we're seeing and connecting with others that different Google administrations have gone down. Gmail, YouTube, Google Drive, Google Docs, Maps, Adwords and Adsense, Google Pay, Google Home, Nest, and Google's Chromecast are for the most part encountering blackouts, with handfuls, even hundreds, of reports we've seen so far rolling in from across Europe, the US, Canada, India, South Africa, nations in Central and South America, Australia and likely more.

Downtime site indicators are showing big spikes for services dropping starting from around 11.30AM UK time. In India, it was around between 5PM to 6PM.

After the fixation by the engineers of Google, all the services are going on smoothly without any problem.
