Have you ever stared at your iPhone screen in frustration as the automated customer service voice drones on, leaving you stuck in an endless loop of menu options? 

How much of your precious time has been wasted on hold, waiting for an actual human to help with your problem? 

Here's a Cool Tip.  Try the Google Labs' 'Talk to a Live Representative' feature.

Google Labs, the company's hub of experimental features, is testing a new tool called 'Talk to a Live Representative'. 

This game-changing feature aims to take on the headache of customer service calls. 

It essentially waits on hold for you and notifies you once a live representative becomes available.

It is being tested on a variety of phone platforms.

In this case, let's look at the iPhone version.

Here's how to do it.

Talk to a Live Representative' on iPhone
  • Currently, the feature is in limited testing, so not everyone will have access immediately.
  • Tap the Google Labs icon on the iPhone Google App.
  • Toggle On the Talk to a Representative option.
  • Select "Try an Example".
  • Select an industry to get started.
  • Select a Company.

  • Select "Request a Call".

  • Specify the reason for your call, and provide your phone number.
  • Select "Request a Call".

  • Google's system will call the business, navigate the phone menus, and wait on hold for you.
  • You'll only receive a call back once a live agent is ready!

This cool Google Labs experiments saves time, reduces frustration, and is convenient to set up and use.

Imagine trying to contact your airline to reschedule a flight or reaching out to your internet provider about a service outage. 

Instead of wasting precious minutes or hours on hold, 'Talk to a Live Representative' could take that burden off your shoulders.
