We’ve already knew that some sort of integration is in the pipeline, but now we have the clearest proof yet in the form of an unfinished feature that can be accessed via a debug menu in the Hangouts app.
According to a new report, Google Voice may soon be fully integrated into Google Hangouts.
The CyanogenMod team has, with the help of prolific Android developer Koushick Dutta (Koush), merged a workaround that allows any application to send SMS messages through the Google Voice app.
New Google Chat desktop notifications show a Google+ Hangouts name, thus apparently confirming that the rumored Google Babel service would be called Hangouts. Read on to see screenshots!
Google Voice received a major update yesterday after more than a year, and it brings interesting tidings, which could mean a unified messaging service.
Google’s messaging services are fragmented, so far. Babel should unify and sync messaging across platforms and devices, like iMessage and BBM and also do more.
According to a report quoting multiple sources, Google’s unified messaging service will be dubbed Babble. Combining the functionality of Google’s many communication apps, Babble will likely be shown off at Google I/O.
You know that icon suggesting a unified messaging app is coming? It actually belongs to an internal testing app, says the developer that first revealed it.
There is so much good stuff in the Android universe. We have amazing phones, tons of apps and games, and the best operating system around. Even with all that awesome at our fingertips, we are still looking to Android’s future.
A few days before the start of the New Year, Google has announced on its blog that it’s extending Google Voice free calls for folks in North America for another year.
