If you've ever wished for some expert advice at a moment's notice, Google thinks it can help. On Tuesday, the internet giant rolled out a new tool called "Google Helpouts," which puts users in touch with people in the know.

Think for a moment, if you wanted to learn anything-what would it be? Google says it's got the help or advice for you. With Helpouts, users can schedule or get one-on-one lessons on-demand.

Editor-in-Chief of CNET Reviews Lindsey Turrentine thinks this is in preparation for the company's rolling out of Google Glass to consumers. "So, if they can perfect this technology, then someone wearing Glass could do a demo using their hands free," she said.

The cost of a session varies. Most are $20.
