No, it wasn’t just you – Google Calendar went down for nearly three hours on Tuesday.

Google Calendar stopped working for many users at 10:22 a.m. ET on Tuesday. The G Suite Status Dashboard marked a service disruption for Google Calendar at that time but didn’t specify the cause of the issue or whether any Google Calendar users could access the service.

G Suite updated Google Calender’s status to confirm at outage effecting the majority of users at 11:40 a.m. EST, and began implementing a fix. Google marked the issue resolved at 1:13 p.m., about three hours after users began reporting issues.

Visitors who encountered the Google Calendar error received a message saying “Not Found, Error 404.” Hundreds of social-media users reported the issue on Twitter as the downtime continued. Google’s Gmail platform also encountered a service disruption a day before on June 17. Users reported problems accessing Gmail and also said that some spam messages were not being properly filtered from their inboxes.

The Google Calendar outage arrived just hours after G Suite tweeted a message promoting the popular service.

Google offered the following statement after Google Calendar was restored – “The problem with Google Calendar and Hangouts Meet should be resolved. We apologise for the inconvenience and thank you for your patience and continued support. Please rest assured that system reliability is a top priority at Google, and we are making continuous improvements to make our systems better.”
