Google Calendar Dies One Hour After Google Tweets About How Great It Is No, it’s not you. Google Calendar really does appear to be down. Navigating to google.calendar.com will present you with a 404 error. Twitter users began to complain about the outage at approximate 10:05 AM EST and Gizmodo staff has been unable to navigate to Google Calendar from either the US or Canada. This isn’t even the first outage this month. On June 2nd, Google experienced another, apparently more extreme, outage that took out Calendar, Youtube, and a number of third-party apps.

The outage is occurring as President Donald Trump convenes a White House conference of like-minded critics of Big Tech.
