Google may be working on a guided assistance feature for upcoming Nexus devices dubbed Google Support. The app will allow support agents to access your classy screen (upon your consent, naturally), so that they'll be able to more easily assess the issue and assist you solve it.

So far there's a single screenshot from the app for us to theorize on and it looks genuine - it's even got the redesigned navigation buttons supposedly coming with Android N.

The rationale behind such a feature is obviously two-frecent - on the one hand, it'll create the platform more accessible to first-time Android users, and on the other, it'll create life easier for support agents trying to deal with users unable to elaborate their problems in a voice call or in a live chat.

All that said, the feature is still reportedly in an experimental phase and will not necessarily create it to the official Android N release. And even if it does, that's not strictly it's final form.
