More details emerged about Google’s upcoming unified messaging service. An alleged internal Google memo revealed some of the features of the app, as well as which services would be merged into Babel.
On Monday, we were treated with what appear to be the first genuine screenshots of Google’s rumored unified messaging system. Supposedly called Babel (a name that appears in the screenshots), the app will bring together Google’s disparate messaging services in a single, streamlined app to rule them all.
The folks at Droid Life have brought forward a fresh bunch of juicy details that complete the picture of Babel. The source of the information is an internal memo that someone in Google’s team supposedly made public. In other words, treat it with caution until official confirmation.
Here are the most important leaked details:
While some of these details were rumored before (or they are just common sense), this leak, if accurate, gives us some of the missing puzzle pieces.
Our Angelo Racoma laid out what Google needs to deliver with Babel in his excellent column here. Personally, I am looking forward to the syncing of notifications across devices. What do you expect from Google Babel?

Regarding the leaked screenshots, the name “Babel” does not exist on them anywhere. The name “Google Talk” does.
However, a screenshot from a Gmail notification mentioned Babel apps suggesting that “Babel” may connect with multiple apps as a multi-protocol tool. Remember that Google purchase Meebo not too long ago.

This is a separate screenshot from the ones specified in this article. At this point, I’m not sure whether Babel is just a codename or if it is just a background service that links Babel Chat Apps (like Talk) together or what.
Am I the only one that was hoping for a service that not only provided this, but also synced my text messages on my Android phone, as well? I was really hoping for an Android/Google equivalent of iMessage. I mean, these features look great, but I’m a little disappointed that there’s no Android SMS integration.
