While making a host of major announcements during its I/O conference, Google shed light on its recent acquisition which now officially brings app performance startup Pulse.io under its reign.
Pulse.io enhances the performance of apps by figuring out what is slowing them down and makes tweaks to reduce the loading time of apps.
Pulse.io will remain available to existing customers for an undisclosed amount of time and obviously, won’t add new features. Pulse further says,
The company is looking forward to incorporate itself into Google’s glorious ecosystem. It stated on its website that it “can think of no better place to continue its journey than at the home of Android.”
Pulse.io used its official Twitter account to acknowledge the acquisition. The company has so far managed to raise more than $1.75 million. The first $1 million seed was raised in July 2012 and the second $750,000 seed was raised in November 2013.
Google has, so far, only confirmed the acquisition but did not reveal any further details. This means that the terms of deal are still unknown.
Google has been making vigorous attempts to speed up Android. In fact, the next iteration to Android, that is Android M, is especially dedicated to optimize the feel and performance of Android and its applications. This acquisition would help Google to make another step towards this goal.
