In a statement to the media, a Google spokesperson said, “We’re aware of an issue affecting Gmail. Please visit the G Suite status dashboard for more details.”

At that time, Google had issued a statement saying it was aware of the issue with Gmail and was investigating the problem. “The affected users are able to access Gmail, but are seeing error messages, high latency, and/or other unexpected behaviour,” the statement had read at the time.
