The basic idea of the app was to control multi-media applications, but Google’s acquisition of app may take it outside the multi-media arena. What Google will do with the app is uncertain, what’s concrete is that the technology will be deployed in Google’s Chrome browser, mainly targeting the Chromebooks. We have already seen the way Google has integrated Nik Software with Chrome browser bringing the same capabilities to the browser.
