So long farewell. It’s time to say adieu to another Google experiment. If you were one of a few people using the service, after Monday, 20 April, 2015 it will be no more. According to Google about Helpouts, “it wasn’t growing at the pace they (Google) needed it (Helpouts) to.”
Since 2013, Helpouts provided a unique service on the internet where experts can share (either for free or in most cases a fee) their knowledge with those who sought that help. There were a variety of different topics users could select from including how to cook, tips on improving house or gardening. Starting April 20, 2015, you can download your history using Google Takeout. After November 1, 2015, you will no longer be able to.
Did any of you have your own expertise hotline or did you use Google Helpouts when needing help with something? We would like to hear your experience with it.
