Better media management coming to Android? Google acquires Pushlife

Pushlife, a Toronto-based mobile entertainment company, just announced on its website that it has been acquired by Google. What’s Pushlife you ask? Well, according to TechCrunch “PushLife let you manage wallpapers, music, videos, ringtones and other media on your cell phone until its acquisition” What will the Pushlife team be doing at Google?

…will be working on building better mobile applications for all users.

It sounds like this is connected to what we heard back in January that Google was hiring mobile developers to build Android apps. In this case, it could be something related to “immersive mobile experiences for people to play, organize, share and purchase digital content across multiple devices” In other words, better media management for Android. Google Music is right around the corner, but it looks like Google doesn’t want to stop there. The software giant might be working on a true iTunes competitor. A product for not only music but also other types of media like wallpapers, ringtones, videos, podcasts, etc. Or I could be reading too much into this acquisition. Either way, more apps for Android is always good.

Update: Here’s a video showing Pushlife’s music app. Thanks, Varemenos.

    Lets hope of a better media management system (god i miss the multitasking and media management of Symbian OS).
