Cambridge-based tech startup Redux bought by Google

Written by  Sam Cooke Jan 10, 2018

UK tech startup Redux has been bought by tech giant Google.

According to Bloomberg, the international tech firm quietly acquired the Cambridge-based startup, whose proprietary technology creates surfaces which transform phone displays into speakers. 

It’s not yet known when Alphabet – through an Ireland-based subsidiary of Google – bought the startup, but UK regulatory filings show that the transfer of shares was completed in mid-December.

Crunchbase, on the other hand, lists the transaction as having taking place last Summer.

Details of the deal remain undisclosed, but it’s worth noting that Redux closed a $5m round in March last year from investors including Arie Capital.

Bloomberg said a Google spokesperson declined to comment, but it’s thought Alphabet could use Redux’s engineering capacity to improve the quality of sound on its handsets.
