Google has announced that unfortunately it will be shutting down its ‘Helpouts’ service for sharing and seeking advice on everyday challenges on April 20th, 2015. Users can already no longer download Helpouts mobile apps for iOS or Android as they were pulled from their respective stores.
The project Helpouts didn’t grow at the pace or got the level of market acceptability Google expected. The service was unable to form into a successful marketplace for selling live-time advice that Google hoped it would. As a result, starting 20th April the service will shutdown but the users will be able to download their history from Google Takeout which will be available until November 1st, 2015.
