Google Task Mate app pays you for doing simple tasks on phone
The app will allow users to earn money by completing simple tasks on their phones.
Google is testing its Tasks Mate app in India. The app will allow users to earn money by completing simple tasks on their phones. Task Mate will provide access to several tasks which will be posted by businesses from across the world.
This includes clicking a picture of a restaurant, answering survey questions about personal preferences, or translating from English to other languages. The app is currently available in Beta and has been limited to selected testers using a referral code system.
Users will be paid in local currency for the tasks they will complete. The Task Mate testing was spotted by a user on Reddit and was first reported by 9to5Google. The app is there on Google Play, but you cannot use it unless you have a referral code. This is an invite-only system.
The app allows you to "find tasks nearby", "complete a task to begin earning," and then "cash out your earnings." The cash out can be done by registering an e-wallet account, or the in-app payment partner can also be used.
The tasks are considered "simple" by Google and can be given by businesses from across the world. They have been categorized as "Sitting" or "Field tasks", with the latter noting how many minutes you will have to walk.
Also, Google can directly ask for a task. In a case example, "Go to the location shown in pin and take a photo of the shopfront once you're there," Google will then utilise the data to "help improve mapping services and bring businesses in your local area online." Other examples also include Record spoken sentences, Transcribe sentences, and Check shop details.
