This is the sentence that we all dread to hear ask. Is Google down? Now, you can always pull up Google in your browser, and check for yourself – however I have a better place for you to check and see what problems are going on with Google.
The Google Apps Status Dashboard is the place to go. Not only will this let you know if there are any issues with your Google Apps, but it will tell you if Google Mail, Google Calendar, Google Talk and more are having issues too. Right from the front page, you can check on the status from 7 days back, and further if needed.
You can also get status updates for performance issues on:
- Google Docs
- Google Spreadsheets
- Google Presentations
- Google Video for Business
- and Google Groups
