The Google calendar service is back online after suffering a major crash on Tuesday.
The https://calendar.google.com (New Window) site was inaccessible and led to an error message.
Problems began to occur around 10:05, according to Twitter posts by users.
At 10:22 am, Google acknowledged the existence of the outage on its page to report service issues.
“We are investigating reports of a problem with the Google Calendar,” the company writes. We will provide more details shortly. Affected users are unable to access the Google Calendar. ”
At 1140, the company indicated that it was continuing its investigation and that the service was completely inaccessible.
Google Calendar finally returned online at 1:13 pm
“We apologize for this inconvenience and we thank you for your patience and support,” wrote Google. Rest assured that the reliability of our systems is one of Google’s top priorities and that we are constantly improving our systems to make them better. ”
Ironically, Google had praised the Google calendar on Twitter early Tuesday, shortly before the blackout.

This is the second time that a major failure of Google services occurs this month. On June 2, the Google Calendar, YouTube, Gmail, and third-party applications hosted on Google’s servers were hit by service interruptions due to a breakdown of the Google Cloud cloud service.
