Google acquires photo backup service Odysee

Google has acquired self-serve 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’s service allowed users to back up photos and videos at full quality to storage on their personal desktops, sync them across devices and share them with followers — making for what the company called an ‘endless camera roll’.
