Gizmo5 acquired by Google

Google continues to invest in the purchase of new companies. After the very recent acquisition of AdMob, the third largest to date, this time the chosen one is Gizmo5, which operates in the area of ​​Internet telephony.

Unlike the deal announced earlier this week, the purchase price has not been revealed, but it is confirmed that the new company will join the Google Voice team.

At the moment there will be no specific products resulting from the acquisition, with the search giant noting that current users of Gizmo5 will be able to continue to enjoy the service, although new memberships are suspended indefinitely.

Gizmo5 is a VoIP client that allows you to make phone calls over the Internet, similar to programs like Skype, but based on an open standard called SIP. The application works with both PC and mobile phones.

According to the international press, rumors of the company’s acquisition had already been reported on a blog, at the beginning of the week, but ended up being muffled by the announcement of the purchase of 750 million dollars from AdMob. The deal with Gizmo5 was confirmed last night, says CNet.
