SunstarTV Bureau: Google launches new application called ‘Task Mate’ to provide small random tasks to their user and will pay for it.
‘Task Mate’ is available on the Google Play Store but the app is still in beta version and new users will only be able to join through the use of referral codes. In the application description it is mentioned that the new app is only limited to selected testers at the moment.
The application provides access to a variety of simple tasks, posted by businesses around the world. For example, take a photo of a nearby restaurant, answer survey questions about your preferences, or help translate sentences from English to your local language.
The user can participate in tasks as per their wish and can also skip them. According to the app description, the given tasks can be completed any time, from anywhere. The tasks will be assigned to the user according to their location. Google will also provide estimated time required to go to a place and complete the given tasks. A report by 9to5Google says that the tasks will be divided into two parts, Sitting tasks or Field tasks.
After the completion of the task in an accurate manner, the user will be paid in their local currency. The next step requires user’s account with a third party payments processor. Whenever he or she is ready to cash out, they’ll simply have to register their e-wallet or account with Google’s payment partner in their app, then visit the profile page and hit the ‘cash out’ button.
Another application by Google called ‘Rewards’ allows the user to earn money by answering survey questions.
