Possible Google Babel Screenshots Emerge


Late last month we caught the first rumblings of a new Google project, one that would reportedly gather the company’s disjointed messaging systems and bring them all under the purview of one app. What we knew then as Babble, now apparently set to arrive as Babel, instead, came to our attention by way of a few screenshots. Problem was, it didn’t take long at all for those images to send up some warning flags, and they’ve since been largely dismissed as phonies. How is Babel actually going to look? We may be getting closer to finding out, thanks to some new (and hopefully legit) images surfacing.

This time we’re not looking at Android at all, but at the web-based version of Babel; apparently, Google could be launching this as a cross-platform solution. Now, the Android version could end up looking substantially different, as Talk has little in common with web-based Gmail chat, but since Babel is all about unification, this just might reflect the design of the app to some extent.

What little we can see appears to once again confirm the Babel name, as well as hint at Google+ integration, with copious references to hangouts and the like. The whole thing is much more graphical than before, with user icons and chat bubbles rather than a strict text-based display.

We’ve still got plenty of questions, but if more leaks like this keep coming, we could get our answers sooner rather than later.
