Google has reportedly acquired an app known as Odysee, which is used for backing up images on smartphones to your desktop. Following the deal, Odysee announced on its homepage that it would be shutting down its services following February 23 to join the Google+ team.

Here’s the full post by Odysee,

We are excited to share that the Odysee Platform Team will be joining the Google+ Team.
Odysee’s vision was to be the easiest way for everyone to capture unlimited memories and access them everywhere. We are very excited to join Google where we'll continue to focus on building amazing products that people love.
Our deepest thanks to every one of our users. To help you with the transition, the Odysee service will continue till Feb 23rd and soon after that all your photos and videos will be available as a downloadable archive.

While how Odysee will be integrated is not known yet, it is safe to assume that the Odysee team would be working to bolster photo sharing features on Google+. The move also shows that Google isn’t giving up on its social network efforts just yet. Google+ already has a rich collection of images from users, thanks to Android’s backup feature.

Earlier, Google had acquired a polling startup known as Polar, which has transpired into a polling feature on Google+.
