Google announced a new service back in August this year called Google Helpouts. Its much like Hangouts, which brings together many of Google’s previous fragmented communication services. Users can send images, chat or initiate a video or voice call from within Hangouts, but what if users want some expert help with the same ease of use? That’s where Helpouts comes in, it connects experts with people who need their expertise. The service hasn’t been publicly launched as yet, but a new rumor suggests that the service might finally be launched on November 5th.
The folks at AndroidPolice have received a screenshot of a notification that was reportedly sent only to those few who have had their Hangouts approved, they say it comes in from a “trusted source,” which claims that the service goes like on November 5th. The select few who have received this notification have been provided private access to the Hangouts website so that they can set things up prior to the public launch. Google is still allowing people to request access to Helpouts, but with the public launch believed to be a few days away, it would just be best to wait for Helpouts to officially drop. Google hasn’t confirmed if the launch indeed takes place on November 5th.
