Third-Party Email Mac/iOS App Sparrow Acquired by Google

Whoa, I can’t say anyone saw this coming but Sparrow, an incredibly popular third-party email app for Mac/iOS devices has been acquired by Google. The team will be integrated into Gmail while continuing to “make Sparrow available and provide support for our users.” I’m seriously excited by what these guys can do with Gmail. Sparrow is my go-to client on my Mac and a constant presence in my dock. This can only be good.


We’re excited to announce that Sparrow has been acquired by Google!

We care a lot about how people communicate, and we did our best to provide you with the most intuitive and pleasurable mailing experience.

Now we’re joining the Gmail team to accomplish a bigger vision — one that we think we can better achieve with Google.

We’d like to extend a special thanks to all of our users who have supported us, advised us, given us priceless feedback and allowed us to build a better mail application. While we’ll be working on new things at Google, we will continue to make Sparrow available and provide support for our users.

We had an amazing ride and can’t thank you enough.

Full speed ahead!
