According to Down Detector, which logs outages and service interruptions, the outages appeared to have been primarily clustered along the East Coast of the United States as well as in parts of South America and Europe.
Google acknowledged the outage and blamed the issue on network congestion. The problem has already been rersolved and all those apps and services are running as usual.

We will provide a detailed report of this incident once we have completed our internal investigation. This detailed report will contain information regarding SLA credits."
