At 12:30 P.M. ET, Google took notice of the service disruption an informed the public with the following message:

“We’re investigating reports of an issue with Google Mail. We will provide more information shortly.”

Nearly an hour later, at 1:10 P.M., Google updated the status of its disruption giving Google Mail users the all clear:

“The problem with Google Mail should be resolved. We apologize 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.”

In addition to the Google Mail outage, users were reporting Google Chrome quitting unexpectedly on a regular basis via Twitter, making those who use both services extremely frustrated for the duration of the disruption.
