Google Helpouts, ”a new way to connect people who need help with people who can give help, over live video, anytime, anywhere“, could be coming to fruition on Tues, Nov 5th thanks to a source over at Android Police. Initially announced back in August, the service appears to be very useful, once kicked off that is. The rollout will allow you to connect with people over Hangouts where you can consult an expert or gain assistance with something over a video conference for a small fee or even free of charge. The popular search giant has been preparing the rollout for a couple of months now and it seems to be nearly ready.
If the source is accurate, we could see the official rollout in about a week. Per the post, that user received the tidbit via private notification as they were a preapproved user by Google to get the initial configs underway in time for the rollout. As for those who weren’t preapproved? We’ll just have to exercise patience as always in this industry. However, the sign up page is still live so if you want to give it a try you’re more than welcome. Don’t forget to keep it here for the initial announcement as we’ll be all over it like white on rice when it’s announced.
