If you lived in India and happened to open any of the apps like Google, YouTube, or Gmail, you must have probably shown a message of Server down on 14th of December around 5-5:30 PM.
If you had encountered a similar situation at that time, then you aren’t alone; people from all over the world experienced this problem.
Everyone was astonished to see that Google servers, too, sometimes become down or even crashes. Early morning phone checking stopped for many while in many parts, people started doubting their internet connection.
Exact things will know, but for crips, Google global servers crashed. This server crash from Google only happens once on a Blue Moon. Many of us have encountered this first time, so you had got a good experience or indeed not so good or whatever it may be to you.
What exactly happened?
There was a tweet from the official cloud account of Google at 3:47 AM Pacific Time stating “an authentication system outage.”This is a problem due to the internal storage issue of the Google servers. The Server down issue lasted for about 45 minutes, stopped entire Google products on the board. Right from the Google search engine, YouTube, Gmail, Google Assistant, Google Home. Everything just stopped working in that period of time.
The next tweet following this came only at 4:32 AM Pacific Time, stating that all the Google services are restored and will be working as normal. So, approximately the server down notice was noticed for around 45 minutes.
Life without Google- Lasted for 45 Minutes
For the people living in the Western countries, tried to open their Gmail accounts, that the first thing many of us do early in the morning, just after waking up. The people were not able to glance through their Emails.
In India, too, this happened around the evening, and everything seemed to be anything else; people tried opening various apps like YouTube, Gmail but were showed only the same thing “Servers Down.”
The sad part of the entire story was that people felt helpless this time because they weren’t able to search for their problem on Google too. Because Google too had gone down, this also made people aware that Google too can be crashed down sometimes.
We in life sometimes become so dependent that things don’t work if that doesn’t happen, we need to come out of this ideology. Relating the same line to the Google server down the issue.
