Google Wants To Pay You To Share Your Skills With Others Via Google Helpouts

What’s your first instinct when trying to answer a question or solve a problem? You Google it. But sometimes that isn’t enough. That’s why the search giant is rolling out Google Helpouts, offering face-to-face tutorials and advice via video chats.


Helpouts are video calls powered by Google+ Hangouts that involve experts selling their services in various areas of expertise. As of now these categories include Home & Garden, Computer & Electronics, Cooking& Education, Health & Counseling, Nutrition & Fitness, Fashion & Beauty and Art & Music.

The service is currently being tested, but you can sign up to be notified of its official launch. In the meantime, Google said it’s inviting “people with expertise across a number of topics” to offer their input.
