Google’s Unified Chat Actually Named “Babel” – Coming to Android, iOS, Chrome, G+ and Gmail

DROIDLIFE- Over the last couple of weeks, we have seen a handful of reports suggesting that Google is on the verge of releasing a unified chat service called “Babble.” This new service was rumored to have merged services like Voice, Talk, and Google+ Messenger into a cross-platform chat solution, hopefully ending the siloed and independent chat experiences that we all currently experience. While most of those reports were on the right track, we believe that the actual name of the new Google messenger service is called “Babel” rather than “Babble,” at least internally. (Android, GMail, Google Chrome, Google Plus, iOS, Services, Web)
