On 4th November Google announced a new video service that allows sharing and recieving expert advice online in form of recorded videos by users.
Those benefitting from these advice sessions, called Helpouts, will pay the experts providing them either by the minute or by the session, depending on the latter’s preference, and using Google Wallet.
The video series are in eight main categories: Fashion and Beauty, Computer and Electronics, Fitness and Nutrition, Education and Careers, Art and Music, Cooking, Health and Home and Garden.
Those who will offer advice in any of these areas are asked to upload a personal photo, write a short descriptive title on the service provided and write about their qualifications that enables them offer this guidance. An introductory video that will give potential customers a better understanding to the offered services is also to be uploaded.
