“The Google Calendar issue could have been limited to the web, as iOS and Android mobile apps were reported functional during the outage”
After around two hours of downtime in the US, UK, and other European regions, Google Calendar is finally back online. Multiple users took it to Twitter to report that the Calendar on the desktop was returning 404 error, instead, of showing daily schedule. However, the issue could have been limited to the web, as iOS and Android mobile apps were reported to be functional during the outage. Though the issue seems to be resolved now, Google didn’t reveal possible reasons that caused the problem in the first place.
Furthermore, in a statement on G Suite dashboard, Google said, “The problem with Google Calendar 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.“
