Meeting’s canceled. Google Calendar, the search giant’s scheduling service, faced an outage Wednesday early afternoon that affected an undisclosed number of users.
A server error page read, “Google Calendar is temporarily unavailable. Please try back later. In the meanwhile, you might find useful information on our Help Group and Help Center. We apologize for any inconvenience.” The service reportedly went down for 18 languages, while the site is available in more than 30.
According to Google’s App Dashboard, the company was aware of the issue. At 11:20 a.m. EST the site posted, “We're investigating reports of an issue with Google Calendar. We will provide more information shortly.”
Meanwhile, avid Google Calendar users took their grievances to the microblogging site Twitter:
Google Calendar is down. At least I have an excuse if I blow off my afternoon meetings. Blame it on Google!

The disruption follows Google Drive, the company's document cloud service, going down in October.
