Google Tasks Mate is being tested in India, and will let users earn money by doing simple tasks on their smartphones. Task Mate will provide access to a variety of tasks, posted by businesses from around the world. These include things like clicking a picture of a restaurant, answering survey questions about personal preferences, or helping translate sentences from English to other languages. The app is currently in beta and is limited to selected testers through a referral code system.
Users will be paid in local currency for the tasks that they complete. The Task Mate testing was spotted by a Reddit user, as reported by 9to5Google. While the app is available to download on Google Play, you can’t use it unless you have a referral code, which is available through invite only.
There are essentially three steps to using Task Mate, as written in the app description on Google Play: find tasks nearby, complete a task to begin earning, and cash out your earnings. Tasks are categorised as Sitting or Field tasks but it appears that Google can directly ask for a task as well. On the app, you can see the number of tasks completed, correctly done, your level, and the tasks under review.
