Palantir Acquires the Voicegem Team, but Not the Product

Voicegem announced today that its team is moving to New York from Palo Alto, Calif., to join Palantir. Over the past eight months, the Y Combinator company developed a voice-based email service that worked as an alternative to a phone call. Palantir, a well-backed data analytics company, is not acquiring Voicegem’s product or its user data. The service will shutdown on March 15. Voicegem’s announcement appeared on Hacker News.
