According to numerous social media posts from users, the company’s service displayed an error when users tried to sign in or access emails and files using Google’s drive service.

In addition to email and storage, apps such as calendars, video conferencing tools, document editing, and spreadsheets were offline at 6:55 am ET, according to the Google Dashboard, which shows the availability of Google services.

Affected app services resumed around 7:35 am

A Google spokesman did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
