Google acquires QuickOffice and Meebo

Google recently launched their very own cloud computing service known as Google Drive, and I am sure that all Google fans are familiar with Google Docs as well. Now the search giant is planning to expand their line of mobile applications, as they have now acquired one of the most famous mobile suites known as QuickOffice. The app is available for both Android and iOS, and Google is planning to combine its features and integrate it into apps in the future. Have a look at what Google said:

“We’re happy to announce that we have acquired Quickoffice, a leader in office productivity solutions.
Today, consumers, businesses and schools use Google Apps to get stuff done from anywhere, with anyone and on any device. Quickoffice has an established track record of enabling seamless interoperability with popular file formats, and we’ll be working on bringing their powerful technology to our Apps product suite.
Quickoffice has a strong base of users, and we look forward to supporting them while we work on an even more seamless, intuitive and integrated experience.
We’re excited to welcome the Quickoffice team and their users to Google.”

QuickOffice already offers integration with Dropbox and many other applications, and soon we will see integration with Google Drive as well. In related Google acquisition news, we’ve learned that Meebo has been picked up for around $100 million. Expected to play out in the advertising field, we imagine this will tie in with Google+ pretty tightly.
