Google, owned by Alphabet Inc., was unavailable to thousands of users on Monday, according to outage monitoring website Downdetector.com. According to Downdetector, which analyzes outages by compiling status updates from various sources, including faults submitted by users on its platform, more than 40,000 user cases have reported issues with the most largest search engine in the world.
According to CNBC, people in Singapore, Australia and the UK have also reported having issues with Google. Users posted screenshots of error messages, which temporarily caused it to trend on Twitter. Google servers displayed error 502 when a search was in progress. “502. This is an error. The server encountered a temporary error and could not complete your request. Please try again in 30 seconds. That’s all we know,” the message prompt said.
Another review read: “We’re sorry, but it appears there was an internal server error while processing your request. Our engineers have been notified and are working to resolve the issue. Please try again later .” Additionally, the Google Trends service experienced a brief outage. The link opened, but nothing appeared in the window that displays trends. However, real-time trends worked fine. After a short period of time, service resumed. Many users from India and other countries have complained about the malfunction of Google on Twitter.
“I had an error in the Google search engine for the very first time. The engine was totally broken. It’s so rare that the first thing I did was to come on Twitter to see if something big was happening on the web. Conspiracy theories here we come! #google #error,” @RyanBakerSLO wrote on Twitter.
Had a first time Google search engine error. The engine was completely broken down. It’s so rare that the first thing I did was pop on Twitter to see if there was anything big happening on the web. Conspiracy theories here we come! #Google #Mistake
