Google is working on a new chat application that will compete with Facebook Messenger, Skype and WhatsApp, claims Wall Street Journal. The report says that the company is trying to integrate chat bots with Artificial Intelligence in this new messaging service.

Google now has its own chat service (Hangouts), which offers voice and video chat, but its user base is quite small, especially compared with its main rivals. According to WSJ, the company hopes this new application to be much more successful.

The report adds that in October, Google tried to buy startup called 200 Labs Inc, which develops chat bots with AI, but the company refused the offer. Still there is no official confirmation and information about when the new chat application of Google, will be presented and how it will be called.
