Google Babel references appear in strings of code, pop-up message

Babel, for those of you who haven't yet heard the rumors, is a new messaging system that Google is supposedly developing as we write these very lines. It is meant to provide a unified communications platform for users of Android, Google+, and other Google services, judging by what leaks are hinting at. Speaking of leaks, a handful of alleged Google Babel screenshots made the rounds a few weeks ago only to be dismissed as fakes soon after. Yet these latest bits of evidence in support of the service's existence, on the other hand, might be very real indeed...

why the hell Google needs to be so redundant?

gtalk, hangouts, Babel... why don't they focus on one messaging service and make it better...

I personally use whatsapp first and it is the most popular in my country and among friends and family... but secondly I use gtalk...
hangouts are not popular enough yet, viber for android is annoying with their ios ui... Skype is only online at request on rare occasions.

I would be ok if Google buys whatsapp and merge their services but not if they keep creating new ones being redundant.
