Android users having problems signing into Google Now (all fixed)
posted by Michael H. / Sep 19, 2012, 11:20 PM
The strange thing is that there will be a constant notification in the Android tray saying that there is a sign-in error, and tapping the notification will lead to a message saying there was an error in connecting to Google servers. But, Google apps still work fine, with no errors in the Play Store, Gmail, Talk, Reader, etc.
Anyone else noticing this error?
*Update* We're learning a bit more, and it seems that this is an issue specifically affecting Jelly Bean devices, and is related to Google Now servers being shut down, which would correlate with what we're seeing on various Nexus devices.
*Update 2*After about 3 hours of downtime with the Google Now servers, everything looks to be back up and working!
"...and it looks like there are others experiencing the same problem (including Kim Jong Il, apparently)." LoL. I did not and am not going through this issue. My GS3 is perfectly fine and running great, but interesting article.

Is it just the notification, or is it affecting Google services for you too?

same here! started about an hour ago. initially started with one google account sign-in error. so, i figured I'd just remove the account and add it again, the moment I did that, I was able to sign-in, but then instantly I wasn't able to sign-in to my second google account. so, then i figured removing and re-adding accounts does the trick - so I removed all four google accounts and re-added them only to realize that by the end of the cycle, the my first account (which I already removed and re-added) is giving me sign-in error !! WTF! anyways, removing and re-adding accounts does squat! googlie, c'mon man, I've backed you up far too many times. don't let me down now! :)
