Google, YouTube, Gmail seems to be down or crashing in the Balkans and Turkey on December 2019

Alt Text!

Google Services constantly crash in Southern/Eastern Europe right now (10am Eastern European Time). Anyone else being affected? What can you do?

Google for some reason seems to be failing around the Balkan area. Google takes a while to process a query request while YouTube cuts the connection after around 10 - 20 seconds.

Many people from these countries complaining that every Google service is failing or down, by posting comments on DownDetector. Definitely, you are not alone!

What can I do?

No one likes waiting right? We suggest you to use DuckDuckGo for now or if you have a paid VPN service, you may use VPN to North America such as US and Canada or western Europe like Germany France and UK. Despite that, Google services may still be down for the next 30 minutes.

Are you affected? Let us know by dropping a comment down.
