Google Helpouts aims to improve your life with the healing power of web video

It’s like a Hangout, only with less loitering and more healing. Or something. After months of behind-the-scenes testing, Google’s launching Helpouts, a new service that leverages the company’s video offerings to pair users up with doctors, teachers, personal trainers and the like.

Those professional life maker-betters need to list their credentials, as per the Hangout-powered service’s fine print, so you don’t wind up showing off that gaping shotgun wound to just any Joe Webcam (also, you should probably see a real life doctor. That looks infected). It should come as no surprise, too that the offering will be available on mobile devices, as well, so you embark on that pilates session on the bus to work. And once you’re all done, you can check out with Google Wallet.
