Google bought the makers of popular iOS app Snapseed earlier this week, Nik Software; and as 9to5Google predicted, Google Senior Vice President of Engineering Vic Gundotra just confirmed the technology is going toward Google+.

According to the executive’s announcement on his Google+ profile:

Earlier this week I proudly welcomed +Nik Software to Google. They’ve been making pictures more awesome for 17 years, and we’re excited to bring Nik’s expertise to the entire Google+ community!

Gundotra further said Google would continue to offer and strengthen Nik tools and plug-ins. The company’s most notable product, Snapseed for iOS, is similar to Facebook’s Instagram. It is a photography app that launched on Apple’s iPad in June 2011. Snapseed won “iPad App of the Year” soon after it landed in the App Store, and then it arrived on the iPhone in August 2011 and Mac OS just four months later.
