Google isn’t done with Google+ yet, or its recent shopping spree. The company has acquired photo backup and sharing app Odysee and will be integrating the service into Google+. In the announcement of the acquisition, Odysee told its users that it will be ceasing operations later this month and will be joining the the Google+ team.
Google has acquired photo backup and sharing smartphone app Odysee, with the team behind the platform set to join Google+ to “continue to focus on building amazing products”. The Odysee cross-platform camera roll, which had been available as an iOS and Android app, allowed users to automatically back up photos and videos taken on their mobile devices to their home PCs. The company, which announced the acquisition on its homepage and via a notification sent to its app users, told users it will cease operations on February 23. While Odysee will be ceasing its existing backup service later in the month, all users’ photos and videos that have already been processed by the system will remain available as a downloadable archive following the shutdown.
