Google acquires Meebo (chat)
Companies in Relationship
Initial Announcement Date:
Consideration: $100M (Source: Bloomberg)
Meebo lets users chat with each other across different instant message services. Google acquired the company in 2012 and is integrating the service into Google+.
This is a classic acqui-hire with Meebo's core offerings being shut down so that the talent from the acquired team can focus on technology tightly tied to Google+.
