No, it’s not just your internet, Gmail really is down

Been having trouble accessing your emails today? Or maybe just attaching something or even just sending emails in general?

Don’t worry, it’s not just your internet, gmail really is down. It trended on Twitter that gmail wasn’t working for a lot of people, leading them to look it up on, a site that tells you if a site or something isn’t working so you can eliminate your own internet connection or even hardware.

On, it shows a spike in the last 24 hours for gmail-related problems. Some people simply can’t open their gmail while others, if they make it past the gmail loading screen, are having trouble sending emails or attaching files. The website times out and/or even crashes, making it impossible to work with. Don’t worry, it’s not just you. People all around the globe are having problems.

Check out the spike below:
