Error running the Real-Time Overview

Hi Guys,


I have been getting the error 'One or more of the services on which we depend is unavailable. Please try again later after the service has had a chance to recover.' for the past 3 days now. I did a bit of research around it when i first had it, and it suggested that I should wait and this will get working. But its the 3rd day now and still the same issue. 


Can someone please tell me what I can do about this?

Hi @Faiz S,


Google Analytics has released official word that they are aware of this widespread issue. They are working on fixing it, so please remain patient.


The only work-around while the fix is underway is:


  1. Use a different IP (VPN)
  2. Use any of the Google Analytics Apps for mobile (iOS or Android). The real-time reports work with the App.


Or you can just give Analytics team time to get things working.


Kind Regards,
