Toronto-based firm nabbed for $25 million.

Google has made yet another acquisition and this time its a Toronto-based firm PushLife. The company helped users to easily sync their music collection, among other things, stored on their PC with their mobile phones. The software worked through either iTunes or Windows Media Player.

According to StartUpNorth, Google paid a cool $25 million for the three year old company. A Google representative said: “We believe the team has a wealth of experience building cool mobile applications, and we think they’ll make a great addition to our mobile team.”

Google is said to gearing up its own music services, which will also support music syncing on Android smartphones.
