Microsoft acquires Talko to make Skype better for teams
Microsoft has been sloping up its startup buys as of late, however this time it’s purchasing one that as of now had an association with the organization: Talko, a chat application for mobile teams established by Ray Ozzie – a previous Microsoft official.
In case you’re not well known, the iOS-only service (an Android dispatch was also around the corner ) brought text messages, calls , voice clips and sharing features all into one application, with the objective of empowering groups to impart in the most ideal way for a given project or reason.
Microsoft means to bring those components into Skype and Skype for Business. In a blog entry, the organization said:
As part of the agreement, Talko employees will join the Skype team. Together, the new technology and talent will help us deliver great new features and capabilities in both Skype and Skype for Business.
Talko will step by step close down its administrations by March 2016 as its components get attached onto Skype and its workers join Microsoft. That is, aside from Ray Ozzie, who doesn’t plan to come back to the organization.
