Qik has been an extremely popular mobile video chat, mail and sharing application since its introduction which leaves no room for surprise that Skype wanted to acquire the company and all their technologies. Now Skype has fully acquired Qik and all its properties now belong to the video chat giant.
“I’m happy to confirm that we’ve completed the acquisition of Qik. The transfer of shares and funds between the shareholders of Qik and Skype was completed today and Qik is now under the ownership of Skype. We’re very excited about this move, and look forward to working together with the Qik team to make our mobile video products even better.”
Skype first announced their plans of acquisition as this year’s CES. Now that the acquisition of Qik is complete they will use the software to integrate with their own services making Skype even more powerful.
