Imagine needing expert advice on the spot but you don’t have the time to travel to a tutor or expert. You need to finish your homework assignment by midnight, and it’s already 10:30. Well Google (NASDAQ:GOOG) has just made it possible for you to get that advice you need without stepping outside your house. A new project by Google called “Helpout”, is a website which is available to everyone offering expert advice via video chat services.
This new Google service has been built on the technology it uses for its social network Hangouts video communication service. It has been modified and designed specifically for users to be able to connect with and learn from an expert in a particular field of interest.
Cash will be required for the services being offered before you enter in video communication in your selected field. The experts are allowed to charge for their services by the minute, or a session. The price range for expert advice will vary considerably depending on the area of their expertise. The categories range from math tuition, modelling advice, or guitar lessons to name a few.
