Google: Docs, Drive disruption issue resolved

Google Docs disrupted

Some of Google Inc's services, including Drive and Docs, which were facing disruptions for a few hours on Friday have been resolved, the company said.

Google's status page had showed that its file-sharingservices such as Drive, Docs, Sheets, Slides and Classroom were facing disruptions.

In an update, the company noted that the problem should be resolved and apologized for the inconvenience.

Some Google file-sharing platforms had suffered connectivity issues on Friday afternoon, with some users complaining they could not access the services.

Just before 3 p.m. Eastern, Google acknowledged the problems in a tweet. The company later said on its status page it was investigating problems with Docs, Slides, Sheets, Drive and Classroom. At about 5:30 p.m. ET, Google said service had been restored for some users and it expected a full resolution shortly.


The cloud-based platforms allow users to create, edit and share documents. Users can make text documents, slideshows and spreadsheets, among other functions.

The company's Class C shares, which recently started trading under the name of umbrella company Alphabet, closed 0.7 percent higher Friday.
