Babble Will Join All of Google's Chat Services

Whether you use Google Hangout or Google chat, most users on the net are switching to Google for their communication needs. The main problem is that Google Hangout, Google Talk, Google Voice, Google Chat, GmailChat, and Google+ cannot communicate with each other...until now.

Google is apparently looking to bring together all of its communication services under one roof. The platform will be dubbed “Babble”, and it will solve the problem of too many chat services.

According to Geek dot com, Google is building "Babble" from scratch and will combine all of these services into a closed-communication platform. With Babble, you will be able to chat with anyone on your Google contacts list, and all of the signature features from each individual chat service will be available in one chat box. You can have a hangout, share pictures, and send e-mails from one service. It's time to start updating your contact lists.

This new system could be what Google needs to compete with the likes of iMessage from Apple, Blackberry Messenger, and Facebook Messenger. Although this would greatly improve user experience and add a refreshing sense of connectivity to everything this program is long overdo and some users may have jumped ship with reckless abandon without learning about this.

The Google I/O conference is in May and should be the event where "Babble" is unveiled. The service will be available for all PC users, and don't be surprised when "Babble" releases on Android devices as well as Chrome OS devices. There is no release date for this service yet, but hopefully everything will be clarified at I/O.
