Technology has transformed the way we communicate and share. There are many applications that we use to communicate our thoughts and ideas, in personal as well as professional life. Some of us use Google Talk, Skype, Google+ and many other applications to fulfill our communication needs. As we are getting more accustomed to smartphone, there are apps like WhatsApp, Viber, Hotmail, etc that improves our communication efficiency on the move.
Recently there are rumors of Google launching its new communication product, Google Babble. It has been in the buzz and has become a hot topic of discussion. You may be aware of the different products of Google, which helps us to communicate in our day to day life. The products such as, Google+, Google Drive, Gmail, Hangout, Voice, Messenger, etc, however, all these have different interface and different ways of communicating. Each of them has certain limitations. At times, this can be frustrating, when you need to share and image while chatting, but you are unable to do it. To take care of such issues, Google is planning to unify all its chat services under Babble.
What is Google Babble?
Babble is just another effort of Google to increase their range of communication applications. However, what makes it unique is its ability to aggregate existing communication applications into one unified messaging client. This will give you a unified experience and common interface no matter, what application you are using. It is an effort to merge the real time communication services under one head.
What is expected from Google Babble?
According to the reports of geek.com, Google is working on building Babble from Google+ to Gmail. With the help of this, you will be able to share photos while chatting as well as you can start hangouts with anyone in your contacts. You will also see the same type of chat window opening, irrespective of the application you use.
Google is directing its efforts towards making communication interactive. It is eyeing at exploring the world beyond Google Talk, Google Voice and Google Chat.
I expect Google Babble to revolutionize the SMS service. For me, it will personalize the message, chat and sharing experience, whether it is video, photos, or smiley faces. If it incorporates the features which mimic the feeling of actually being present there, then it is going to be a success. As it is expected that it will allow interaction on the go, anywhere, anytime and sharing everything, it is surely going to take SMS service to a new level.
Initially it may need time to get fit into your routine, which is obvious with most of the new things. However, the report says that Babble will notably have good quality and performance. Google may probably announce the arrival of this service during the I/O event in May. So you can expect it as another feather in the cap for Google communication.
