Adding to the plethora of outages that apps from major tech giants have been suffering lately, Google’s Calendar refused to work for over nearly three hours for users around the world.

Google Calendar users trying to access the service were met with a 404 error message through a browser from around 10 a.m. to 12.30 p.m., The Verge reported on Tuesday.

Accepting the outage the G Suite team took to Twitter and posted: “Google Calendar is currently experiencing a service disruption.”

Replying to a user on its thread the G Suite team informed that the Calendar app on the mobile phones we operational amid the chaos.

“Hi Rick, thanks. Indeed the Google Calendar app on the mobile is still operational an can be used. The support team will be posting updates about the Calendar issue on the Status Dashboard,” the team informed.

US based search engine giant Google has announced that Cloud Print, its cloud-based printing solution, will be retired at the end of next year.

“Beginning January 1, 2021, devices across all operating systems will no longer be able to print using Google Cloud Print. We recommend that over the next year, you identify an alternative solution and execute a migration strategy,” a support document for Cloud Print said on Thursday.

Devices across all operating systems, including Android and Chrome OS, will no longer be able to use Cloud Print.

Since Google has improved Chrome OS’s ability to natively print documents from the browser to a network printer, so there is no need for a Cloud solution in between, forbes.com reported.
