None of the two companies disclosed a price for the purchase. But US newspaper New York Times reported that the acquisition had cost Google about $40 million.

The app, launched more than four years ago, allows users to share files by bumping devices together and Lieb has earlier claimed that the app was downloaded 125 million times.

Meanwhile, Google said that the Bump team has demonstrated a strong ability to quickly build and develop products that users love and the company believes that they will be a great fit at Google.
