Google says that a “significant subset” of Gmail users are running into errors with the service right now.

While users can access their inboxes, they may encounter “error messages, high latency, and/or other unexpected behavior,” the company wrote in a message on its service status page. The errors come just a day after many Google properties, including Gmail, YouTube, and Google Docs, were hit with a widespread outage.

Downdetector, which monitors reports of website issues, shows a spike of problems impacting Gmail starting around 3PM ET. Users have reported being unable to access their inboxes, while others have said they’re receiving bounceback messages when trying to email someone with a Gmail address.

Google said it plans to provide an update by 5:30PM ET on when it expects the problems to be resolved.

Stadia, Google’s game streaming service, was also having issues this afternoon, but it’s unclear if they were related. The company said a problem was “prohibiting some users from launching games.”

Google now tells The Verge that the issue with Stadia has been resolved and “users should be able to play games as usual.”
