This week Google has reached into their pockets and have purchased two companies that they hope can help their always growing collection of services.  Quickoffice is a popular Android application that allows users to create and edit documents (Microsoft Word for mobile basically).  Google plans to use this purchase to help add features and functionality to their Google Drive (formally known as Docs).  In addition to this purchase, Google has acquired an instant messenger called Meebo.  Google has had this to say about the purchase:

We are always looking for better ways to help users share content and connect with others across the web, just as they do in real life. With the Meebo team’s expertise in social publisher tools, we believe they will be a great fit with the Google+ team. We look forward to closing the transaction and working with the Meebo team to create more ways for users to engage online.

We are not 100% sure how Google plans to integrate Meebo into the company’s services but it will most likely get put into the G+ messenger and or Google Talk.
