You can now get a sales pitch over Google Hangouts
If you have questions about a Chromebook or a Nexus phone, Google has answers. TechCrunch reports that Google is putting its Hangouts video conferencing tool to work in its product sales efforts.
According to the report, if you have any questions as you browse smartphones, tablets, or Chromebook on Google Play, you can start a Hangout video chat with a Google Device Expert, who will then answer any queries that you might have. It sounds a little like a salesperson in a store, only over the Internet, and you don't have to dismiss them if you don't need help.
TechCrunch notes that this service is only for those looking to buy smartphones, tablets, and Chromebooks through Google; Device Experts can't provide answers for Nest products.
