Google Announced “Google Helpouts”



Google has it all!

Now its official, i posted while back about this new service that Google will introduce to the public [Here].

The service based on connecting people to help each other with a Google Hangout video call. The basic idea is to build up a network of experts on different topics cooking, exercise and mechanical help that are willing to help others who have a need for that specific knowledge, and link them together for either free or paid help.

experts can offer their services for a self-defined fee, of which Google takes a 20 percent cut to cover Google Wallet transaction and hosting fees. Google is however offering a 100 percent money-back guarantee to the person receiving the help if they aren’t satisfied.
