The social media has been agog for the past few hours following the inability of internet users to access Google services in different countries of the world lunchtime on Monday.
There were various comments on Twitter on Monday afternoon that Google services which include Gmail, Google Docs and YouTube went simultaneously down.
Many users took to social media to ask if the challenges were personal or common to others. But comments suggested that similar challenges were faced in Nigeria, United States of America, India, South Africa, and Australia among many other countries.
Before now, some internet services such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and WhatsApp have experienced downtimes.
Meanwhile, Google was yet to officially react to the accessibility of its services as of the time of this report.
Its services have, however, been restored in Nigeria.

Google dies for 30 minutes. Suddenly I cannot work. That’s pretty lame. Not the work bit but the fact Google owns me. It’s also quite freeing. I make a coffee. I drink it staring blankly at my computer. God I’m powerful. Google comes back up. I go back to my emails. 🥸#googledown

So, Google and YouTube went down, while the CISA sent out an emergency warning and shutdown orders after a series of cyber breaches.
