Helpouts now official, currently invite-only for experts

Today Google is officially announcing Helpouts, a feature to receive and offer help in different areas using Google Hangouts. This is basically a mediator between knowledge seekers and those who already have expertise in certain fields. Topics can be anything: like fixing gadgets, learning to play music instruments, yoga and fitness tips, gardening tips, cooking, fashion, learning foreign languages and so on. The main purpose of Helpouts is to help each other and learn from each other.


You will be able to choose the person or brand who will help you, based on their qualifications, availability, price, ratings and reviews. Connection can be made instantly or booked in advance. The service doesn’t let you just chit-chat, but you can also work on projects, share your computer screen, record the sessions etc. If by any chance the service hasn’t met your expectations, a refund is guaranteed.

At the moment Google is limiting the categories of offered help, but the number of people helping out will surely grow.

Are you ready to give it a try? Then visit the Helpouts page here, simply type your question into the “I need help with…” search box and results of people ready to help you will be displayed. You can also download Android application from the Playboard below. Have fun!
