Google may pay you for doing simple tasks on your smartphone

Must read

Google has had many a reward programmes for smartphone users to trial its apps and services. The Google Pay app in India, for instance, gives cash backs and other rewards for doing transactions on the app. There’s also the Google Opinion Rewards app that earns users credits on Google Play Store. Now, it seems like Google is testing an app that will earn users money by doing ‘simple’ tasks. According to a report by 9to5Google, the app called Task Mate is in early access and is being tested with a select few users through a referral code system.
The report cites a post on Reddit and states that these ‘tasks’ are considered simple by Google and are related to “businesses around the world.” The tasks can be going to a location and take photos of a shop. Or to record spoken sentences and even transcribing sentences. The tasks, as per the report, are classified into two categories — Sitting tasks and Field tasks. The report says that the tasks could include taking “a photo of a nearby restaurant, answer survey questions about your preferences, or help translate sentences from English to your local language.”
According to the report, the Task Mate app will help people find tasks nearby and then on completion of the task users can earn money. While how much money can be earned hasn’t been specified but users will have to register an e-wallet account or the money can be “cashed out” with an in-app payment partner.
It’s not clear when and how the app will be rolled out to users in India. Since it’s in early access phase, we can’t even be certain if the app will see a total roll out or be nixed in the testing phase only.
