If you were suddenly knocked of your Gmail account Friday around 2 p.m. ET and were feverishly trying to sign back in so you could finish your last Gchat with no success, you are not alone.

Many on Twitter also noted the issue.

#Gmail is down. $Goog drops to $0. Lunch no longer being delivered to @ office. Productivity at 0%. #Apocalypse is imminent.

#Gmail is failing. My whole work day, along with millions of people, depends on it. Can anybody still use smoke signals?

Those trying to access Gmail received an error message that looked a little something like this (below).

google gmail error

Google’s Gmail went down Friday afternoon, serving up this error message. (Image source: Google screenshot)

The outage-checking website Down for Everyone or Just Me noted that it “looks down from here.”

Before 2:30 p.m., Google’s email service seemed to come back online.

Gmail is back. Life resumes, and they're dancin' in the streets.
