Google recently announced in a blog post that it acquired Swedish company Limes Audio, which focuses on bringing solutions for improving the quality of voice calls. The company was created 10 years ago and it has offices in Umeå, Sweden, as well as Stockholm and Palo Alto.
Google is now focusing on providing a great audio experience to its video conferencing solutions, including Google Hangouts. “With G Suite customers now relying on video communications for their day-to-day meetings, it’s more important than ever to ensure low-cost, high-quality audio,” the blog post reads.
The company said that a poor Internet connection can affect the quality of video calls, which is why Google is now relying on Limes to find solutions for such issues. Limes Audio has been working on creating solutions for removing distortion and echoes that can affect online video and telephony calls.
