However, the search giant has told users not to expect a video chat service any time soon.
A Google spokesperson told vnunet.com that the company plans to use the Marratech software for internal operations only. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
The cross-platform Marratech software allows Mac, Windows and Linux users to set up and participate in video conferences through built-in microphones and webcams.
"Google thrives on casual interactions and spontaneous collaboration," said Douglas Merrill, vice president of engineering at Google.
"So we are excited about acquiring Marratech's video conferencing software, which will enable from-the-desktop participation for Googlers in videoconference meetings wherever there's an internet connection."
Google has been establishing a presence in the business software area. The company offers a free online suite with similar features to Microsoft Office, including a newly-launched web-based presentation application.
