Mac and iOS Email Client Sparrow Acquired by Google

Image: Sparrow

Sparrow announced today that it has been acquired by Google. The Sparrow team will join the Gmail team and work in their products.

We're excited to announce that Sparrow has been acquired by Google!

We care a lot about how people communicate, and we did our best to provide you with the most intuitive and pleasurable mailing experience.

Now we're joining the Gmail team to accomplish a bigger vision — one that we think we can better achieve with Google.

We’d like to extend a special thanks to all of our users who have supported us, advised us, given us priceless feedback and allowed us to build a better mail application. While we’ll be working on new things at Google, we will continue to make Sparrow available and provide support for our users.

We had an amazing ride and can't thank you enough.

Full speed ahead!

Dom Leca
CEO
Sparrow

The announcement came as a surprise today, Sparrow will continue to be supported and will received critical updates as needed but won't be receiving new features.

This means that the Sparrow iPad app that lots of people have been waiting for will never see the light of day; on the other hand, Gmail's iOS app might get updated so people can actually use it.
