Google says $1.1bn for AirBnB, Airbnb as part of acquisition

Google announced today that it has bought AirBnb, Airbnb and Quandl, all of which offer “airbnb” services.

The deals are the culmination of a search for a business that could eventually be part of Alphabet’s broader effort to bring together Google’s search and data services, including self-driving cars and artificial intelligence, with its own services.

Google’s acquisition of AirBnds and Quands comes as it looks to expand its business as an online marketplace and to compete with Amazon’s growing presence in the space.

AirBnts, a San Francisco-based rental platform, had revenues of more than $8bn in 2017, according to the company’s most recent financial filing.

Airbnb has around 60 million members, and its growth has been driven in part by growth in its service of renting out homes for short periods.

Airbnb is a social media company and the first of many to join the Alphabet-backed group, which includes Google parent Alphabet as well as other businesses including Alphabet’s parent, Google Inc. Alphabet has been a strong backer of Airbnb, which is currently one of the biggest services for renting out private homes in the United States.

Airbnb’s founders and co-founders were part of the founding team that created Airbnb.

The deal includes a $1bn purchase of Quandls for $400m, which will allow it to focus on “driving and delivering the technology to improve AirBb and Quando,” the company said in a statement.

Google is also acquiring Quandlt and AirBrent, which are also part of Quando, the company says.
