Google has recently introduced an App called Task Mate which is being tested in India. This app will let Indian users earn money by completing simple tasks on their smartphones. Through this app, users will get access to various tasks which are posted by businesses from around the world. These tasks will include: to click a picture of a restaurant, to answer survey questions about personal preferences or to help in translation of sentences from English to other languages. The app is currently in beta testing and is limited to selected testers only through a referral code system.
As per the report by 9to5Google, the Task Mate testing was spotted by a Reddit user. Users will be paid in local currency for the completion of the tasks and the app is available to download from Google Play. You cannot use the app until and unless you have a referral code which will be available via invite only.
As written in the app description on Google Play, there are essentially three steps to use the Task Mate app which are: to find tasks nearby, to complete a task to begin earnings and to cash out your earnings. Tasks are classified as Field tasks or Sitting tasks and it appears that Google can directly ask for a task as well. In this app, users will be able to see the number of tasks completed, tasks correctly done, your level and the tasks which are under review.
If a user needs to go in the vicinity of the task, the app will let you see the approximate time it will take to go there. You can also see the cost of a task but as of now the price can be seen in dollars only. Tasks like taking photos of shop fronts will apparently help Google to improve mapping services and bring business in the area online. If you are not interested in a task or unable to do that task then you can choose to skip that task.
As far as the payment process is concerned, users will have to link an account with a third party processor. When you are ready to cash out your earnings which is earned through tasks, you can register your e-wallet or account details with the payment partner in the Task Mate app. You need to visit your profile page and click on the cash out option in the Task Mate app. After following these steps, you will be able to withdraw the money in your local currency as per the app description. As of now, it is not clear when Task Mate will be available for more users.
