Ssh into playground inside gcp and internet access in the instance

I’m not able to access the instance created gcp playground, neither is the instance able to download anything from internet.
Just a simple ping to google turns out in a timeout operation same for trying to connect via ssh

Any help would me much appreciated

The screenshot you see is opening ssh from the browser. However trying to ssh from my local machine does not work and turns into a timeout
