According to reports from online sources, there has been a significant outage in the functioning of the Gmail email service, causing a delay in the delivery of electronic messages, reports The Verge.

Google confirmed the issue on November 30 at 9 p.m. Yerevan time, acknowledging a surge in user complaints about difficulties while interacting with the service.

According to Downdetector, the problem primarily affected Gmail users in the United States. It is also noted that when using personal email accounts to send messages, delivery was relatively swift.

However, messages sent from users' Workspace corporate addresses experienced prolonged delays in reaching their intended recipients.

The outage persisted for several hours, and according to Downdetector, the situation has since stabilized. The exact cause of the Gmail service disruption remains unknown at this time.

Official representatives from Google have refrained from commenting on the matter so far.
