Google acquires photo backup service Odysee


Google has acquired mobile backup service Odysee for an undisclosed sum today. The company will join the Google+ team, and will likely use its expertise to boost Google’s photo management offerings.

Odysee allowed users to back up full quality photos and videos to local storage, sync them across devices and share them with followers — making what the company called an ‘endless camera roll’.


Odysee’s iOS and Android apps have been pulled from their respective stores, but the company says it will continue to offer the service until Febraury 23. It will then allow users to download an archive of their images.
