Fly Labs to Join Google Photos Team After Being Acquired by Google

Fly Labs Acquired by Google

Google recently announced the acquisition of Fly Labs. Fly Labs is famous for their easy user-oriented method of making more use of their valuable moments captured by photos and videos. They have created video creating apps to gather all the memories of users in a compact format. In the last 18 months, their video editing apps have been downloaded more than 3 million times in over 150 different countries. Also with the help of Fly Labs more than 20 million videos have been created.

The Fly Labs announced this acquisition by stating, “We’re excited to continue on our mission by joining Google and the Google Photos team in Mountain View, California.”

Google has been a home for photos, and relishing user’s memories.

Fly Labs posted the following letter on their website:

We’re excited to announce that Fly Labs has been acquired by Google!

Our mission at Fly Labs has always been simple: to help people make the most of their photos and videos. We make video editing apps because we believe that there’s no better way to stay connected with your memories than by engaging with them creatively. In the last 18 months, our video editing apps have been downloaded more than 3 million times in over 150 different countries. More than 20 million videos have been created with apps made by Fly Labs.

We’re excited to continue on our mission by joining Google and the Google Photos team in Mountain View, California. Google Photos is a home for your life’s memories, powered by Google’s machine learning and computer vision technology. It’s a perfect match for what we built at Fly Labs, and we’re looking forward to folding our technology into Google Photos. We’ll be pouring the same passion into Google Photos that we poured into Clips, Fly, Tempo and Crop on the Fly.

Meanwhile, as of today, all Fly Labs apps are completely free with no in-app purchases! The apps will be available on the App Store for another 3 months – so you can still download them and use them to get creative with video – but please note that we will not be submitting any more updates to the apps. Once the apps are removed from the App Store you will still be able to use them, but they will no longer be available for download.

We’d like to thank our users, our beta testers, our investors, our friends, our families, and everybody who helped us get this far. Onwards and upwards!

Love,
The Fly Labs Team

Fly Labs has 3 suite of apps including Tempo, Fly and Crop which will be made available in the coming months.  Google also passed the 100M member mark recently.
