The problem with Google Mail should be resolved. We apologize for the inconvenience and thank you for your patience and continued support. Please rest assured that system reliability is a top priority at Google, and we are making continuous improvements to make our systems better.

Update: 9:01 AM EST – Google’s status website also reports issues with Google Docs

As of 8:58 AM EST, Google has acknowledged a service disruption with Google Mail as well as Google Drive.

Google is also reporting a complete outage of its admin control panel/API.

While the outage does not seem to reach everyone, my work Gmail account has been telling me that my password is wrong all morning.

Notably, Google Calendar and Talk seem to be unaffected.

Google has released an update to their calling feature inside of Gmail, allowing users to make multiple calls. If you’re on a call and make another call, the current call will be put on hold and you can switch between the calls with the resume button. Even better, when getting an incoming call while on another you can put the current call on hold.

This new feature works on voice, video, and phone calls. If a call is placed to a physical phone number there can only be two calls at once. How long until you can conference calls and do everything else a phone can do?  Bye bye telephone!
