Vivox Acquires Droplet
Vivox has acquired Droplet and plans to integrate the company’s video software into its own VoiceEverywhere platform, which serves more than 80 million users, generating 3.5 billion minutes of voice chat each month.
Vivox said the acquisition strengthens its cross-platform communication capabilities and video chat solution for mobile while minimizing bandwidth, processing resources, and power needed from mobile networks and devices.
"In acquiring Droplet, Vivox is building on its history of improving the communication experience for consumers and carriers alike," said Rob Seaver, Vivox's CEO, in a statement. "We are committed to providing a high-quality video communications solution for consumers that complements our existing superior voice services."
The integration of Droplet technology into Vivox's platform will let carriers provide new mobile video features and enable users to message or call across devices, including the new iPad, and countries, social networks, and operating systems without straining the resources of the mobile network or user's device. Vivox's current offerings support both iOS and Android devices and seamlessly integrate with any mobile network or carrier.
