Google have acquired the gesture control recognition company Flutter. Known for it’s iOS and Windows app thats lts user control apps like Netflix and Spotify without the use of the mouse, is now under the wing of Google.

Google confirmed the acquisition in a statement provided to Mashable.

“We’re really impressed by the Flutter team’s ability to design new technology based on cutting-edge research,” a rep said. “We look forward to supporting and collaborating on their research efforts at Google.”

Navneet Dalal, Flutter’s CEO, wrote on the company website announcing the acquisition.  

“Today, we are thrilled to announce that we will be continuing our research at Google. We share Google’s passion for 10x thinking, and we’re excited to add their rocket fuel to our journey.”

Flutter launched last year and raised $1.4 million from Andreessen Horowitz and other investors. Flutter’s existing apps will not be shut down, though it’s likely the company’s focus will shift to Google products. With the exception of a Chrome extension, Flutter has not developed anything yet for Google’s products.
