For Tasks that Require more Specialized Assistance
You can call for on-demand video customer support from professionals at any of our well-known partner companies, without leaving the Be My Eyes App. Providers vary by region and language, but include households names in categories such as:
- Web and Computer Technology
- Health and Beauty Products
- Home and Cleaning
- Blindness Organizations
Specialized Help calls work exactly like a standard Be My Eyes call, but instead of getting connected to a volunteer, you will be connected to a representative of the selected company. The trained representative will be available to answer questions or help you tackle issues related to their products or services with speed and in-depth solutions. As always, it’s completely free to use.
Making a Specialized Help Call
If you wish to call one of our partner companies, simply enter the Specialized Help menu and select the company you'd like to connect with. On their company profile, you can learn more about the service the company offers through Be My Eyes, their opening hours, and supported languages. You'll also find a button to call the selected company.
After you request assistance, it will take a moment for Be My Eyes to locate the first available support agent and establish a connection. Once the connection is established, you can talk to the company representative, and he/she can also see what you point your rear-facing camera (the camera on the back-side of your phone) at. The combination of the video feed and the support agent's expert knowledge is an efficient and simple way to get your issues solved or your questions answered.
