About the global outage of Google Calendar, the company has issued a message which reads, “We expect to resolve the problem affecting a majority of users of Google Calendar at 6/18/19, 1:40 PM. Please note that this time frame is an estimate and may change.”

It is worth mentioning that this outage happened after Google’s G Suite posted a promotion tweet talking about the Calendar’s simpler scheduling ability.

At the time of writing this story, Google Calendar had been restored back to normal. It should be noted that other services of the company like Gmail, YouTube and Maps weren’t affected in the outage.

However, it is worth pointing out that Google Hangouts Meet reportedly had some difficulties following the Calendar’s outage.

Earlier this month, a number of Google services had suffered major global outage. These included Discord, Nest and even Snapchat as users from around the world complained about not being able to access them. The outage reportedly happened because of the problems within the company’s Cloud services. The technology giant eventually blamed the “high levels of network congestion in the eastern USA” for its outage and issues.

Before June, the services of Google had suffered a global outage in March this year that affected services like YouTube, Gmail, and Google Drive. Even then, the outage lasted for around three hours before the company fixed its platforms with an update on G Suite Status Dashboard.

However, Google is not the only one facing these problem. Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp have also suffered a major outage this year. Surprisingly, Apple too had suffered a global outage of its iCloud services in March 15, when it was down for about 4 hours.
