Google News Down for Million Users Globally

On Friday, Google News encountered a widespread outage that affected users globally, hindering their ability to access the latest updates and search queries.

Users across desktop computers, iOS devices like iPhones, and Android smartphones found that the “News” tab was not functioning properly. Additionally, there were reports of issues with the Google Search functionality. The problems started earlier in the day, leading to frustration as the news section and the “filter” option were unresponsive worldwide.

As of now, Google has not issued any official statement regarding the cause of the outage or provided an estimated time for when the issues might be resolved. This lack of communication has left users in countries such as the United States, United Kingdom, India, Canada, and various parts of Europe in the dark about when they can expect normal service to resume.

In addition to the News tab, Google Discover, which usually showcases trending and personalized news stories, was also impacted by the outage. Users reported that it was displaying only cached older content, further limiting access to current information.

The outage highlights the reliance of millions of users on Google services for timely news updates and information retrieval, underscoring the impact such disruptions can have on global information access and communication.
