When it comes to shopping for Google products, some people need help deciding what to buy. Google is reportedly testing a service that would allow customers to talk Android and Chromebook choices with a salesperson straight via Hangouts.

TechCrunch reports that this new feature will team up potential buyers with Google sales associates via Hangouts. According to TechCrunch, the associates will tell you all about Android and Chromebook devices but oddly, not Nest products including Dropcam and Nest Protect.

You can actually try out the service by navigating to the Devices section of Google Play, clicking on the help icon and selecting Video call. Happy shopping.
