A new report out today from French publication L’Expansion claims that Google has acquired 5-year-old startup FlexyCore, the company behind DroidBooster and other tools used to improve performance on Android devices for users, OEMs, and carriers. According to the report, which was later confirmed by Google in a statement to GigaOM, Google has been integrating the FlexyCore team into its Android projects over the last year and just completed the purchase worth approximately 21.3 million earlier this month.

“The FlexyCore team has strong expertise in building software to optimize Android device performance, and we think they’d be a great fit with our team.”

The Droid Booster app, made to optimize java code performance on Android devices, was previously distributed through Google Play but has since been removed.
