Google appears to be suffering from a global outage that took several services, including YouTube, Gmail, and Google Drive, offline.

Several people on social media reported issues with the platforms, with Gmail, YouTube, and Google Drive displaying error messages without further explanation.

According to Down Detector, a website that aggregates reports of online service outages, issues with the platforms began around 6:30 a.m. ET.

Google's main page still seems to be working. However, some users said they couldn't log in.

Google wasn't immediately available for comment when contacted by CNBC.
