A series of impressive purchases have been announced by some of the biggest companies in the world. Google has just joined this list, alongside Samsung and Facebook. It has just been revealed that the famous tech giant will purchase JetPac.
The news was revealed by JetPac on its website on Friday. The tech giant purchased JetPac Inc, a startup that designs social travel applications. Google provided no details at this point regarding the purchase. “We’re joining Google! Thank you for all your interest and support. We look forward to working on exciting projects with our colleagues at Google. We’ll be removing Jetpac’s apps from the App Store in the coming days, and ending support for them on 9/15” the post on JetPac’s homepage said.
JetPac has become well known for its mobile application that uses pictures from various social networking sites, with the purpose to create city guides. This actually is a photo analyzing application which can aggregate photos from Facebook and Instagram to provide city guide information to users.
This is not the only purchase that Google has made this year. The famous tech giant has announced the purchase of Nest Labs Inc., in 2014, as well. This company makes thermostat and smoke alarms. The purchase was made by the tech giant for the sum of $3.2 billion. This is one of the biggest deals in the history of Google. It is yet to discover how much Google has paid for JetPac.

JetPac was founded in 2011 and has its headquarters in San Francisco. What has Google planned for next is something yet to be discovered. Most likely, the purchase will lead to some important changes for JetPac and the way users have been accessing it so far. It is yet to see what these changes will include and what Google plans on doing with this new purchase.
