Google Continues to Investigate Lingering Google Talk Outage
Google began investigating the issue at 6:40AM. At 6:50AM, Google said it was "seeing error messages and/or other unexpected behavior" and promised to provide a ETA by 7:50AM on when the service would be restored. When 7:50AM rolled around, Google pushed its ETA for more information to hour later, and then again when 8:50AM rolled around.
Whatever the problem is, Google seems to be having a bear of time wrapping its engineering heads around it. Information is pretty sparse at the moment, but according to reports around the Web, the massive outage affects users in all corners of the world.
