Doesn't Wavii logo look like Google? Yes it is! Wavii changed their logo as it is acquired by Google! Tech giants often take over innovative services which have bright future. Few days ago, Yahoo acquires Samli, a news service. Last year Microsoft purchased Skype. And just now Google have acquired Wavii.
Before the acquisition, Wavii used the following logo:
Google has purchased many services so far and improved them a lot. Many of which are quite profitable. Such as YouTube, Blogspot etc. And recently it takes over Wavii, which might be used to improve the search results.
Wavii has been created by a group of experts, who previously worked in the organizations like Microsoft, Amazon etc. Founded last year, Wavii provides customized news feeds to the users and summarizes news stories, tweets and blog posts for them. Considering the importance, Apple was also interested to purchase Wavii. But Google managed the deal before Apple! :)
Google didn't publish any news about the price of the Wavii. But it is estimated that it costs Google about $30 million.
Wavii CEO, Adrian Aoun, is also very excited to be connected with search giant Google. The home page of Wavii is now showing a message like below:
We're excited to announce that
Wavii has teamed up with Google!
You probably know us best for our app that takes the deluge of information streaming across the web and condenses it into fast, fun updates. While we won't continue to offer this particular service, we'll be using our natural language research at Google in ways that may be useful to millions of people around the world.
To all of our loyal Wavii users, we owe you a big thanks for all of your feedback and involvement throughout this journey. We look forward to taking our technology to the next level and delighting you with what we come up with next!Best, The Wavii Team
Adrian Aoun, CEO
Now wait and see what Google do next with Wavii. How does it benefit people . . .
