Google Play Redesign And Babel Chat Images Surface On Google+

Google isn’t that big on leaks, but with Google I/O a solid month away, rumors are part of what we’ll see and hear for the next days to come. It’s hard to give you a solid idea on what to expect, but the two rumors that have sounded the most on the web are the Google Play redesign for Android, and the Babel unified chat service.

As opposed to Apple’s approach where you have different stores for everything, the leaks of the Google Play Store version 4.0 seem to retain their philosophy of having one store to serve everything, which is definitely how things should be. Now, aside from looks, it’s hard to tell you exactly what this redesign improves in your buying experience, but we’ll definitely keep a lookout at Google I/O, as that’s where it’ll most likely be launched.

On the other hand, Babel reaches rumor mill again. We’ve discussed Google’s plan to get rid of Google Talk as their chat service, and bring a new and unified service to the masses. It’s just hard to know if this will be any better than all the current messaging services out there, but we can only dream. And yes, we also wish we knew what’s with the name.
