Internet users appeared frustrated as the Gmail service has affected people’s office work. One of the tweets reads, “Gmail seems to be down and everyone is aware of the outage apart from Gmail themselves.” Google or Gmail has not yet tweeted on the issue. Meanwhile, some users tweeted that they could send and receive emails but the system was in all quite slow.
