Rumor: New feature called Google Support allows chat agents access to view your screen
According to a report published on Friday, such a service is coming to the new Nexus phones expected to be released later this year. The feature will be dubbed Google Support. A mockup of a screenshot for the feature says that it "allows the agent to see your screen."
What is unclear is whether the Google chat agent will be able to do more than just view your screen, perhaps manipulating it as well. At the same time, directions might be sent out to a chat box, or heard through the phone's speaker.
Google provides support to Nexus devices only, so if Google Support is a legitimate new feature, expect to see it on Nexus models only. Speaking of which, we could see two Nexus handsets launched later this year with both 5-inch and 5.5-inch models manufactured by HTC.
