Google itself investing in Symphony

Symphony has built a cloud-based messaging service, and uses advanced encryption technology to keep the communications secure. Symphony is based in Palo Alto, California and has also offices in New York. The investment will come from Google proper, and not its investment arms – Google Ventures and Google Capital (Alphabet entities now) – the report says citing sources familiar with Google’s plans.
