Snapchat intends to buy search engine Vurb for $ 100 million
Service Snapchat is very popular in the Western market. Unlike many others in the CIS, it did not stick. But suffice it to say that in the Google Play Store, the app was downloaded between 100 and 500 million times to evaluate how successful out.
According to the source, Snapchat is in the process of acquisition of Vurb for $ 100 million. Vurb is a search service using for completeness the data from other sources. For example, when searching the nearest restaurant, find reviews on Yelp and even offered to immediately call a taxi through Uber.
Hard to imagine how Snapchat will be able to use Vurb for its service. Perhaps, search engine will be integrated directly in the app.
