Google Babel: a cross-platform instant messenger with a hot temper


The last few days on the Web are constantly emerging rumors of cross-platform messaging service Google Babel, which will integrate all existing communication services today, the search giant, from Google Talk and Voice and Hangouts to Google+ Messenger.

If the rumors are true, then Google will do everything for the full synchronization of all the services that may meet the same fate as the Reader . For example, at the touch of a button, users can group chat from the usual switch to video chat Hangout.

It is believed that the platform Google Babel will look like «iMessage on steroids,” but it will not be tied to the Android OS and will work equally well with OS Chrome, iOS, as well as within the client Gmail. If the platform is Google Babel will get all the features, which at the moment they say most of the media, it will radically change the view of the applications to exchange messages. So let’s take a look at what is currently known about Google Babel.

Back in mid-March of this year, the resource claimed that Google will bring together many of its services to exchange messages in a single platform . Referring to several reliable sources, the resource stated that the platform Babel would “use the same chat window for all services, which will be attended by all the opportunities available today.” At the same time stated that the platform Babel, Google will present at a special event Google I / O, which will be held in May.


Later in the first leaked screenshots and rumors that the search giant is planning to buy a startup WhatsApp. Rumors were denied during an interview with AllThingsD Neeraj Arora, responsible for business development of WhatsApp. According to the resource TechRadar, the image below shows how the service will look like Babel inside Gmail. On the following picture you can see a lot of new emoticons, as well as the familiar structure of Google Talk conversations and icons.


At the moment we can say with great certainty that Google will soon present a new platform for the exchange of messages. What can you expect from Babel?

It seems that the search giant intends to promote Babel, like Google Maps and Gmail, among the owners of mobile devices running iOS. The company Google will not follow the example of Apple and BlackBerry, which tied its messaging services to its own platforms, and will attempt to maximize its impact in order to increase the audience Google+. Few people doubt that Babel is not related to Google+.

If the rumors about the integration of Google Voice in Google Babel prove true, then the latter will receive another important feature – the transmission of SMS-messages and making calls. In this case, Google Babel can be a real threat to iMessage, WhatsApp and Kik Messenger.
