Google has a new toy – Helpouts. It’s not the first of its kind, see our write-up on Mindsy, but its a recognisable brand so there’ll be a lot of initial buzz.
Helpouts by Google is a new platform for sharing expert advice on anything from Photoshop to healthy dinners. Advice is shared in the form of video tutorials, either in exchange for money (prices vary) or for free.
We’re still having a play with it, mainly to gauge the quality of advice being shared, but first thoughts are that this has the potential to be a great personal development tool.
Helpouts is now available to download from Google Play store. If you’ve already had a chance to road-test Hangouts, let us know what you think!
PS. Could this be the premium YouTube?
