Google Acquires SayNow
SayNow has announced Google has just acquired them.
SayNow has a platform that allows voice messaging, one-on-one conversations, and group calls to be instantly integrated into Facebook, Twitter, MySpace, Android, or iPhone applications.
SayNow’s cofounders, Nikhyl & Ujjwal, said:
We are thrilled to announce that we have been acquired by Google.
Since 2005, we’ve explored fun and entertaining ways for people to talk with each other. Through the web, smartphones, and even land lines, our products brought communities together through the power of voice. And as Google has some of the best voice products in the world, we believe combining forces with the Google Voice team will let us innovate in new and unexplored areas.
We have no specific product plans to announce at this time, but we’ll have more to say about our roadmap as we integrate with Google, so stay tuned. We couldn’t be more excited about what is yet to come.
The company is based on Palo Alto and venture backed by Shasta Ventures, Tugboat Ventures, and Altos Ventures.
