The most ambitious communication product by Google

In my previous blog post, I have written my opinion about Twitter and why it would be successful in making it big (read the post here ) becuase it is an Internet Communication application with an API for unlimited appliations to be developed on top. Today I have learned about another even more powerful and ambious product to be launched by Google. It will be one that embrace almost all forms of communications on Internet today that I can think of today.
