Words on the street is that Google’s vice president of communications product Nick Fox is leading a team who are reportedly working on building a brand new messaging app that will allow users to chat with friends or message a Google bot for answers to their questions, according to a report in the Wall Street Journal.

The report claims that the new app will enable users to text friends or a Chabot, which will search the web and other sources for information to answer a question. Users can also ask questions in relation to news, images, or weather, and a Chabot will respond accordingly. However, It is still unclear when the service will be launched, or what it will be named but one thing certain is that the messaging app will be a major competition to Facebook’s Whatsapp messenger.
