The first official instance of Google’s new video help service, Helpouts, has been released. Helpouts will allow for users to pay for a specific time frame of video consulting from willing Helpout helpers. While it is just a simple landing page with the opportunity for users to sign-up for a registration, it’s the images included that do the talking.

The new landing page highlights the opportunities of Helpout. From bike repair to yoga or cooking users in a bind can quickly choose to ask an expert and pay for that time. The page has an invitation request and allows those with invitations to log on. The page also states:

Helpouts isn’t available yet, but we’re currently inviting people with expertise across a number of topics to be able to offer Helpouts when we go live — and to make money sharing their skills and knowledge with the world.



For more information or to ask for an invite, head to the new Helpouts page.
