While all eyes target the novelties on display at CES, Google continues its quest to improve its various services. Now, the time has arrived for them to take over Limes Audio, a Swedish company that has been around for a decade, developing technologies that aim to fix the audio issues that usually plague online conference calls.

"As more and more businesses adopt our video conferencing solutions, powered by Chromebox for Meetings and Google Hangouts, it’s critical that we provide a great audio experience," writes Google Cloud's director of product management Serge Lachapelle. In an official blog post, he also revealed that Google and the Limes Audio team would work together "to introduce new solutions that offer our customers the best online voice quality on the market."

Back in 2007, Google acquired another Swedish company, named Marratech. The value of that transaction was $15 million, and its target was similar - to bolster Google Talk and Hangouts. Now, Limes Audio becomes the fourth company headquartered in Sweden to be purchased by Google. However, the financial terms of this transaction are not public yet.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
