Google hasn’t given up on Google+.
Today news broke that Google has acquired yet another app to improve its social network. This time it’s Odysee, an app for backing up photos from you phone to your desktop. With the deal, Odysee shares that its photo saving and sharing service will shut down on February 23. And going forward, the Odysee team will join the Google+ team, where it’s safe to assume they’ll continue to work on photo syncing and sharing products in some capacity.
Today’s announcement follow’s Google’s acquisition of popular polling service Polar — a deal which quickly translated into a new polling feature for Google+. Perhaps we’ll see a quick turnaround from the former Odysee team as well?
