Google has recently purchased Odysee, and by acquiring the photo sharing and backup application they will be using it within the Google Plus social network.
The Odysee platform team will now be joining the Google Plus team to bring new and innovative products to the table. Using the Odysee platform allowed users to backup videos and photos, which users took on their mobile devices.
This will obviously be combined with Google Plus, which will bring more features to the way G Plus users share photos etc.
When visiting the Odysee homepage you will see a a notification of the acquisition, the Odysee service itself will continue until Feb 23rd, 2015. After this date all videos and photos will be obtainable through the downloadable archive after the initial shutdown.
TechCrunch believes it makes sense to enhance Photos with offline features, especially when people are a little worried about sharing more data to Google’s cloud or any other cloud such as iCloud or Dropbox.
What new features will Google Plus bring to the table now they have the Odysee platform?
