Helpouts by Google is a new way to connect people who need advice with experts in different fields. It consists of face-to-face video chats powered by Google+ Hangouts, where people can pay to get help from people who are able to monetize their knowledge and skills by covering areas like cooking, gardening, computers and electronics.

These connections can happen anytime, anywhere. The upcoming service is currently inviting people with expertise across a number of topics to be able to offer Helpouts when they go live. These experts can make money sharing their skills and knowledge with the world.

The entirety of the scheduling, payment, rankings, etc. are managed by Google, in return for a 20% cut. There will also be options to charge by the minute, session, or provide a service for free.
