Google said that a routing issue caused some servers to crash, bringing down a number of the company’s services, including Gmail, Nest, and many cloud clients like Doordash, for around 30 minutes.

As has been noticed, several Google services were down for some users from 6:00 to 6:23 p.m. PDT. A pool of servers that route traffic to application backends crashed, and users on that particular pool experienced the outage. GCP was not affected.
