Gmail and Google Drive were back to running as usual Google said Wednesday after users worldwide reported issues accessing several of the tech company's services.

Google has not yet addressed the issue but some users have reported that some services are being restored.

Google confirmed that Google Drive was also affected with users "seeing error messages, high latency, and/or other unexpected behaviour". It's an internal outage affecting Gmail users everywhere. "Check your network and try again".

Business Insider was not able to send an email to seek comment from Google. The uploading and downloading of files may also be unsuccessful.

Outage Report has taken almost 500 reports of email sending issues, emails being down and email reading issues in the past 20 minutes alone. At 10 15am, it said that it is investigating the issue and that it will provide an update by 13/03/2019 11:14 detailing when we expect to resolve the problem.

Google hasn't released an official statement yet but is responding to individual users on social media.

"Users will have issues accessing or attaching files in various products".

According to a message posted on Google's GSuite Status Dashboard, Gmail is reportedly experiencing a "service disruption".

Hopefully, Google will quickly solve this issue.
