Odysee also had an API for inter connecting the service with other applications. According to Odysee, the app will be shutting down by 23rd Feb as the team behind Odysee will be joining Google+ to focus on developing an amazing product that people demand and love.
The acquisition news was informed to users via Odysee's website and also directly to app users by sending them a notification individually. The notification had the details about shutting down service on 23rd Feb and also the data of existing users will remain safe and will be present as archive for users to download it at later date.
Odysee apps on Apple store and Android markets are removed. There are also rumors that might be Google will be launching a standalone service Photos, with option to save photos or videos locally and it may include better options for sharing.
