Over the last month or so, we have seen several leaks turn up showing what the new Google Play 4.0 store will look like. Along with the leak about the Google Play 4.0 store has also been leaks of a new chat service called Babel. Babel is the name believed to be tied to Google’s new unified chat service.
A small screenshot turned up showing a new search bar from someone’s e-mail that has text reading that “All conversations have been moved to the trash. Because one or more are part of a Babel chat, these messages is still available in other Babel chat applications.” There are a few more details of Babel to share. Some links previously called this service Babbel.
According to reports, employees are being told that they will be able to access the same conversation list from anywhere. There will be a new conversation-based user interface and there will be advanced group conversations capable. The app will support group conversations, the ability to send pictures, and improved notifications across devices.
Along with the leaked Babel chat screenshot also comes screenshot of Google Play 4.0. No details offered along with the single Google Late screenshot you see above. If you look closely, you will notice that the little shopping bag beside the Google Play logo has a picture of a dog bowl with bone hinting that is app was only meant to be seen by employees, commonly known as the dogfooding.[via Droid-Life]
