Find help with just about anything
With Helpouts you can get help anytime from people with expertise across a range of topics – teachers, counsellors, doctors, home repair specialists, personal trainers, hobby enthusiasts, and more.
Choose who to use – now or later
You can choose who to get help from based on qualifications, availability, ratings and reviews.
Also, you can choose to get help immediately or schedule a Helpout for later.
Select from the list of categories that includes:
Art & Music
Computers & Electronics
Education & Careers
Fashion & Beauty
Fitness & Nutrition
Home & Garden
Some of the help offered is free and some you pay for – but a Google Wallet account is all you need for safe and easy payments.
And if you don’t like the experience, Google offers a money back guarantee.
Computers & Electronics is the category I’ll be using most
There is help for everything you’ve ever wanted to know about your computer: from sluggish dowloading to help with getting started on Google+.
Most of the helpouts in this category are free – and the time they are available is clearly visible on the screen.
Then I’m going to try to find out why my cakes never rise and how to get muddy paw prints off a white duvet cover…
