What you need to know
- Google users are reporting an outage early on Monday morning.
- The outage appears to affect essential services like the Drive suite of apps and Classroom
- Reports spiked around 9am ET, the start of the workday.
You're not the only one suffering from Monday blues. Google's Workspace services have also crashed for users worldwide, preventing people from getting work done. Users all over social media and Down Detector have reported that Google Docs, Slides, Classroom, and other services have gone down a state of affairs that we've confirmed. Likewise, Google's Workspace status page concurs.
When loading up an affected app, users report that the service displays an error message:

Google will likely roll out a fix pretty soon, and we'll update this post when that happens. For now, sit tight and use pen and paper.
