[Updated] Google Classroom down, not working, or throws 404 error? You're not alone

New updates are being added at the bottom of this story…….

Original story (published on February 9, 2023) follows:

Google Classroom is one of the company’s most useful tools. As its name suggests, it is especially focused on the education sector.

Through the platform, teachers can assign their students homework and other assignments to complete. Even better is that in combination with services like Google Meet, it allows a complete ‘remote learning’ experience via video call.


However, it seems that currently many students and teachers are facing issues when trying to access Google Classroom as the servers appear to be down or not working.

Google Classroom down, not working, or throwing 404 error

Multiple reports indicate that the Google Classroom platform is currently inaccessible to several people. Both the app and the website seem to be affected by the outage.

According to users, they are only getting a ‘404 error’ message when trying to access Classroom. The issue is preventing students from completing their pending assignments or teachers from evaluating them.
