Microsoft has announced its acquisition of 6Wunderkinder, creator of to-do list app, Wunderlist. The purchase is part of Microsoft’s continued push to improve its users’ productivity, which has already addressed mail, calendars, messaging and notes.
Wunderlist launched five years ago and has grown to more than 13 million users, who have created more than one billion total “to-dos” across all platforms.
The base Wunderlist experience will remain free across all existing platforms, and there will be no price changes for Wunderlist Pro or Wunderlist for Business customers. Wunderlist founder and CEO, Christian Reber, will continue to lead Wunderlist’s team and product strategy.
Over the next few months as Wunderlist becomes a part of the Microsoft family, we’ll introduce a host of new features, continue growing the ecosystem of partner integrations and progress in delivering Wunderlist to billions of people. We are excited and can’t wait to share with you what we have been working on.
A solution this useful and popular does not happen without a lot of hard work from a group of incredibly smart, creative and talented people. We’re pleased to welcome the Wunderlist team to Microsoft and excited to increase our presence in the thriving Berlin tech scene. In the months to come, we’ll share what’s in store as we build on and apply Wunderlist’s innovations to Microsoft’s apps and services.
