Quickoffice, the popular office editing suite for mobile devices powered by iOS, Android, and Symbian, has been acquired by Google, the Mountain View-based search engine giant that needs no introduction. Earlier this week Quickoffice announced it is delighted to be acquired by Google and Google announced it is happy to be able to acquire a leader in office productivity solutions.

Quickoffice Co-Founder and CEO Alan Masarek explained that the goal has always been to provide a user friendly yet powerful way to view, edit, sync, and share documents no matter where the user is. The Quickoffice team worked hard to fulfill that vision and to become a leader in office productivity. The Google acquisition is in line with Quickoffice’s vision and will further help Quickoffice’s aim of becoming the world leader in office productivity.

“Now, we are ushering in a new chapter with Google. By combining the magic of Google's intuitive solutions with Quickoffice's powerful products, our shared vision for anytime, anywhere productivity can only grow,” said Alan Masarek.

Following the acquisition, Google will continue to support Quickoffice users. The company will do so while it works on an “even more seamless, intuitive and integrated experience,” as Google Engineering Director Alan Warren put it.

“Today, consumers, businesses and schools use Google Apps to get stuff done from anywhere, with anyone and on any device. Quickoffice has an established track record of enabling seamless interoperability with popular file formats, and we'll be working on bringing their powerful technology to our Apps product suite,” said Alan Warren.

In related news, Google recently acquired Meebo, the popular web based instant messaging client and social networking platform. With this acquisition Google aims to enhance the capabilities of its Google+ social network. More ways for Google users to engage, connect, and share content will be created with Meebo’s help.
