Google’s email service, which crashed for some minutes worldwide, has been restored. It is now back up and running after the short outage.

DailyMail reported earlier in the afternoon on Monday that Down Detector, a website’s real-time information provider, showed that the down time began at 2:08 PM.

This affected some of its 1.5 billion users worldwide within the short period of outage.

However, by 3:00 PM the issue with Gmail service was restored and it is now back up and running.

Although the reasons for the downtime was not clear, over 7,400 issues were reportedly logged on Down Detector.

According to DailyMail, 86 percent of its users made complaints about server connection issues while around 10 percent complained about logging in and three percent could not receive emails.

According to Down Detector, users in the UK and other countries reported problems with Gmail, with the majority of complaints coming from London.

When attempting to access their emails, several people appeared to be receiving a 502 error message which reads, “The server encountered a temporary error and could not complete your request.”
