future of glip
We’re psyched to be a part of RingCentral. We are doubling-down on Glip. Since we announced Glip’s acquisition by RingCentral in June, I know some of our most loyal and enthusiastic users have been holding their breath. I get it: we have all watched a favorite product get acquired by a larger company that promises great things for it – and then watched our favorite sink beneath the waves. The founding team leaves, the acquiring company doesn’t know what to do with this thing it has bought, and the product either gets killed outright or wanders into irrelevance.
