We just reported that Google is working on taking popular mobile messenger service WhatApps under its control, as a part of revamping its overall messenger interface and now there are reports of sightings of its rumored Babel service – a unified messaging hub of sorts. If this is not enough, following our previous reports is a new image of Play s redesigned version 4.0, which has reportedly briefly appeared on a YouTube s employee s profile before it was deleted.

While Google has not brought any major changes to its messenger services so far, Babel is speculated to be Google s initiative to offer a revamped version of all its messenger services to give a new feel, interface and experience to users. On features front, it is speculated to allow users to access the same conversation list from anywhere, featuring a conversation-based user interface, with advanced group conversations, and ability to send pictures. Babel is also expected to have an improved notification across devices. Google is also rumored to be testing Babel internally amongst its employees across platforms including Android, iOS, Chrome, Google+ and Gmail.
This apart, one of YouTube s employees Eileen Rivera has posted a new image of a screenshot of the new Play Store, which we had earlier reported to be more image-centric and feature Holo themes replacing the present ones. This teased screenshot features a Play store icon with a dog dish and a bone in it, which could be an indication on its restricted accessibility to employees only.
With teasers of Google s new version of Play Store appearing every now and then, in some or the form, the service can be expected to be released soon, most likely at next month’s Google I/O event.
