Google the service provider

I don’t know what Google has planned, but they’ve got something brewing in the communications space.

First Google acquired Grandcentral (now Google Voice). Then they acquired Gizmo Project.

Now they’ve announced the acquisition of voice and video processing technology company GIPS for a shade over $68 million.

This gives Google a:

  • virtual number offering
  • “unified messaging” client
  • back-end engine’s to handle high amounts of voice/video processing

If that doesn’t sound like the starting blocks to a next generation communications provider, I don’t know what does.

Now all they need to do is add Bandwidth.

    I agree, Google Voice is already a great product for a very small businesses and individuals. With this latest acquisition, it is obvious they are planning on expanding their voice product.
