Over 40,000 people in the United States reported to DownDetector that Google was not working for them at 9:20 p.m., including in major cities like New York and Denver, Colorado.

This figure dropped significantly in the two hours that followed, but the reports continued to arrive, in fewer numbers, for Google Cloud (remote computing) and Google Calendar, in particular.

Google did not immediately respond to a request from AFP.

On Twitter, some users of the engine dominant search engines posted screenshots of error messages, mentioning a server problem.
