Evernote, a note taking app with more than 200 million users, is shutting down its own cloud-based architecture and will be moving to Google’s Cloud Platform this October. The transition is expected to be completed by the end of 2016. Evernote will also start to use Google’s machine learning APIs to help access it in different ways. The first two areas that will be replaced by Google’s machine learning APIs are its voice recognition for speech-to-text translations; and natural language processing, used to help search for contextual content.
Recently under Google alumnus Chris O’Neill’s new leadership, Evernote has seen a number of new backers and has altered its revenue structure with more expensive pricing plans. The eight-year-old start up is also scaling back some of its unprofitable operations as it restructures for healthy growth.
