Google has launched a new video based Q&A app called “Cameos” on iOS app store aimed at celebs and public figures. The cameos app allows people to answer questions by themselves and then share those answers directly to Google. The app is primarily aimed at celebs and public figures who are often the subject to people’s Google searches.
The feature is an extension of the company’s “Posts on Google” platform which has been slowly rolling out over the past couple of years, giving some people and organizations the ability to post directly to Google’s search result pages.
Cameos on Google lets you be the authority on you. Record video answers to the most asked questions on Google and then post them right to Google. Now, when people search for you, they’ll get answers directly from you.
ANSWER IN YOUR OWN STYLE: Amplify your presence on Google with videos in your own authentic voice.
AT YOUR LEISURE: See top questions the Internet wants answers to, and you choose which ones you want to answer and when. All you need is your phone.
STAY RELEVANT AND FRESH: Get new questions regularly to help your content stay recent and timely. All your answers get posted right to Google and your fans will see it when they search for you or scroll through their feed in the Google app.
Cameos on Google is currently available by application only. Interested? Download the iOS app to request access.
Google Cameos app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
Another popular messaging app Instagram recently published a Q&A widget to their stories feature. Through Q&A widget users can solicit questions from their Instagram followers. Their followers can then select the questions they want to respond to, and post their replies publicly to their Instagram Story.
Cameos is now available on the App Store for download, but the service only works with an invitation. Celebrities and public figures who want to give it a go can download the application to request access.
Facebook owned Instagram’s Q&A widget is widely popular and used by celebrities and almost all Instagram users as well. Reddit A2A is another popular platform used by public figures to interact with their followers. But the advantage for Google is that it is the most used search platform and gives maximum reach.
