Official: Google Acquires VoIP Firm Gizmo5

gizmoproject_logo.bmpGoogle said on Thursday that it has acquired California-based VoIP company Gizmo5 for an undisclosed sum. Reports said that the purchase price was approximately USD30m.

This acquisition will further broaden Google's range of communication services, adding technologies for voice, text and video communications.

Google confirmed that Gizmo5's engineers will be joining the Google Voice team "to continue improving the Google Voice and Gizmo5 experience".

Current Gizmo5 users will still be able to use the service but no new customers will be signed up for the time being.
