    A Google service issue made it hard to chat online.

    Google restored service for some users after its chat services, which include Google Talk and Hangouts on Google+, went down on Monday.

    The spreadsheet program Google Sheets was fully restored after it also experienced a "service disruption," the company said on its Apps Status Dashboard. Google resolved the issues for Sheets at 2:44 p.m. ET, the dashboard said.

    Those trying to "GChat" were seeing messages that indicated recipients were not receiving chat messages, while chat tabs on Google+ said: "things are taking longer than expected."

    An update on Google's Apps Status Dashboard at 12:22 p.m. ET announced a "service disruption" with Google Talk and Google+ Hangouts. Google announced the same issue for Sheets at 12:47 p.m. ET.

    There was no word on what was causing the problems. In each case, the company said it was "investigating reports of an issue."
