Google Acquires Fly Labs To Join Its Google Photos Team.

Google has acquired Fly Labs in a move that will likely see the startup’s media editing technology be integrated into the Google Photos app. Fly Labs announced the move on its website saying that it’ll be “pouring the same passion into Google Photos that we poured into [its apps] Clips, Fly, Tempo, and Crop on the Fly.” In honor of this announcement, Fly Labs’ revealed that all of its apps will now be “completely free with no in-app purchases” and will be available in the App Store for the next three months. There are so many options out there, and if you’re not hip to it, I’d like to offer Google Photos as the easiest way to share videos and photos on a one-to-one basis–Google Photos. 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.

On the acquisition, an elated-sounding Fly Labs wrote: “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.” No comment from Google and no price. Its chief executive Tim Novikoff sought to create an easy way for content creators to easily apply filters for video in a way that’s generates clips and makes it more shareable.

Still, it’s another sign from the Googleplex that it is investing in Photos, a popular product that evolved out of the less-than-popular Google Plus. In fact, I grabbed one of my Google Photos stored photos, which had its resolution lowered, and submitted it for printing to the online photo site Shutterfly–as a 20×30. You may have qualms about giving Google access to all your photos and videos, but it doesn’t bother me–especially since the app is such a breeze to use.
