People across the country working from home during the coronavirus lockdown were affected as Google South Africa experienced technical issues on Monday, causing various applications including Gmail, Google Docs, Hangouts and Maps to be inaccessible.
“Our engineers have observed an intermittent issue accessing various Google apps including Gmail, Google Maps, etc. The issue is 3rd party (Google) related and is affecting various ISP’s in South Africa. Further updates to follow,” RSAWEB said on Twitter.
