Now, we all know about the leak last month involving Facebook developing a replacement dialer for Android users. Well, reports have now surfaced that would appear Google is working on one of their own.

Google’s current dialer, while good as is, does have its flaws. However the one being worked on would make it much easier to search inside the application for people and businesses, also the new software will be more integrated with messaging.

According to The Information, the same report reveals that even Yahoo is developing its own application. Yahoo’s application will blend text and video, featuring a mix of live and recorded messages. This could potentially be a huge deal for the one time search icon. Yahoo has not been a staple in messaging lately, so the development of this software could help the struggling company catch up with the rest of the industry.

Perhaps, the next we hear from Google concerning this dialer application could be at Google I/O. Maybe as part of a new version of Android? Stay tuned.
