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.
We can be very grateful today for a slew of upgrades being rolled out straight from the busy offices in Mountain View. Among the tuned-up apps, we have some greats – including Translate or Voice – but also some “minions”, like Catalogs or Apps Device Policy.
One of the many places looking forward to an official launch of Google Voice is Canada. It seems every single Google service is available out there right now, except for this one. Has Google Voice’s day in Canada finally arrived? Perhaps not, but if a recent report on Mobile Syrup is to be believed, it’s now closer than ever.
We previously reported that Android 4.2 contained a bug that caused Google Voice to crash when attempting to send text messages. From the reports coming in, the bug was affecting all Google Voice users that had updated to the latest version of Android. The good news is that Google has now pushed out an update to the app that addresses the issue.
