Thousands of reports are flooding in
If you jump onto Twitter, or Down Detector, you'll quickly notice the thousands of comments and reports that have been pouring in since late Wednesday night in the U.S., early Thursday morning.
It's not just Gmail that's seemingly struggling, but the Google Drive service is suffering a few technical glitches, too.
Gmail's service may appear to be working normally until some people try and send an email with an attached file. It then appears to take a long time to send, until ultimately a message pops up saying that the user needs to check their network, as per Engadget.
