Is Gmail stopped working?

Gmail stopped working for you. It’s possible that it’s not working for anyone! Although it is not common, Google’s services do go down from time to time. Fortunately, there are a couple of ways to find out if this is the case.

You can access the Google Workspace Status Dashboard by clicking here. This page will tell you whether or not any Google service is available. Gmail is, of course, one of the apps listed. You can also use a website like Down Detector. The site collects user reports to detect service outages. There’s even a map to check to see if the problem is local.

What to do if Gmail has stopped working?

Close and reopen Gmail.

This is a simple but effective troubleshooting tip that works the majority of the time. Frequently, simply closing and reopening Gmail will resolve any local issues. If you’re using a browser, try restarting the entire browser rather than just closing the tab.

Check that synced Gmail is turned on.

On occasion, we inadvertently change settings. The Sync Gmail option is one that will ensure you can’t use Gmail properly. Go ahead and double-check your settings.

  • Launch the Gmail app.
  • Tap the three-line menu button in the upper left corner.
  • Navigate to the Settings menu.
  • Choose your account.
  • Scroll down to the section on data usage.
  • Check that the checkbox next to Sync Gmail is turn on.

Check back for updates.

Having an older version of an app should usually not be a problem, but it can occasionally cause conflicts. This is especially true when newer updates are more comprehensive or include server-side changes. It’s not a bad idea to check the Google Play Store to see if there are any Gmail updates available.

You should also ensure that everything else is up to date. Check to see if there are any browser upgrades available, for example.

Reboot the device.

It may sound silly, but this is the most common troubleshooting tip, and it appears to work most of the time. Seriously, whenever you have a problem with your technology, simply restart it. It might just work.

Delete your Google account If Gmail suddenly stopped working .

You can also restart your Gmail account completely. The simplest method is to delete your Google account and then re-add it. Because your Google account may be running multiple services on your phone, this may cause some inconvenience, but it’s worth a shot if none of the other methods are working.

On Android, follow these steps to delete a Google account:

  • Launch the Settings app.
  • Passwords and accounts should selected.
  • Locate the Google account you want to delete. Tap it to activate it.
  • Remove the account and follow the on-screen instructions.

On Android, follow these steps to add a Google account:

  • Launch the Settings app.
  • Passwords and accounts should be selected.
  • Select “Add account”
  • Choose Google instead.
  • Enter your email address.
  • Please enter your password.
  • I concur.

Check your internet connection.

Is Gmail even the issue? It’s possible that your internet is failing you. Experiment with other apps or websites to see if they work. You can do something as simple as launching Google and searching for whatever you want. Are the other devices operational? Check to see if you have any. If nothing else works, you can be forced to go off the grid.

Begin by checking to see if Airplane Mode enabled. Those who use Wi-Fi or LAN should check the router to see if it is connected. Restart it if necessary. There is usually a dedicated button, but you can also unplug and reconnect the router.

If you’re using cellular data, you should check to see if your connection is active:

  • Launch the Settings app.
  • Navigate to Network & Internet.
  • Choose a mobile network.
  • Turn on mobile data.
  • If you’re travelling outside of your country or network’s coverage area, turn on Roaming as well (this may incur extra charges).

Remove the cache and data.

Cache and data are important for keeping things running, but they can become corrupted. This is why it’s often a good idea to clean the slate and start over. Just keep in mind that clearing data will erase all information, including your account and settings. You’ll have to log back in and re-configure everything. However, this may resolve any issues that are preventing Gmail from working.

Android cache removal:

  • Launch the Settings app.
  • Navigate to Apps.
  • Under See all apps, look for the Gmail app.
  • Choose Storage & cache.
  • Select Clear Cache.
  • For a fresh start, select Clear storage.

To clear the cache in Chrome for Windows, follow these steps:

  • Open Chrome on your Windows computer.
  • In the top-right corner, click the three-dot menu button.
  • Navigate to the Settings menu.
  • In the left-hand column, click Privacy and security.
  • Choose to clear browsing data.
  • Select what you want to delete by checking the boxes. If there are serious issues, I like to clear everything.
  • In the time range, select all time.
  • Choose Clear data.

It’s possible that your browser isn’t supported.

While Gmail supports most popular browsers, you may be using one that isn’t on the list. The browsers that are supported by Gmail are listed below.

Gmail-compatible browsers:

  • Google Chrome
  • Mozilla Firefox
  • The safari
  • Edge (Microsoft)

It’s possible that the Chrome extensions are to blame.

Browser extensions and applications can frequently interfere with Gmail. A quick test for this is to use Gmail in the web browser’s private or incognito mode. If Gmail works there, try disabling browser extensions one at a time until you find the offender.
