Google Talk is Down

Thursday, July 26th, 2012 | Business | by

Google TalkYup, a Google service is down, and the world stutters.

You’re not crazy, it’s experiencing problems.  Google stated:

We’re aware of a problem with Google Talk affecting a majority of users. The affected users are able to access Google Talk, but are seeing error messages and/or other unexpected behavior. We will provide an update by 7/26/12 5:20 PM detailing when we expect to resolve the problem. 

As of minutes ago, they are still investigating the issue.

Does that mean it’s time for a coffee break?

For what it’s worth, this is the first GTalk outage I’ve seen yet.  This makes us realize how much we rely on a technology, when it’s gone.

Stay tuned to this page, I’ll be posting updates as they come in.  You can also follow @seangw on twitter (me).

From the official Apps Status Dashboard:
