Google will soon introduce ”Task Mate’ in India. It’s now in the testing phase, which will allow users to earn money based on the fulfillment of tasks laid out by Google or of its affiliate businesses.
Task Mate is an application made by Google which 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 that they are interested in, or choose to skip tasks. According to the app description, the given tasks can be completed at any time, from anywhere. The tasks will be assigned in accordance with the user’s location. Google will also provide the estimated time required to go to a place and complete the given tasks. According to a report by 9to5Google, the tasks will be divided into two parts, Sitting tasks or Field tasks.
Once the task is completed accurately, the user will be paid in their local currency. In the next step, the user will need an account with a third-party payments processor. Whenever he/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.
Since it’s in its Beta phase access to this app is restricted. Only users with referral codes can able to access it right now. The Silicon Valley giant is probably hoping to gain some goodwill in the current climate of rising unemployment as a fall out of the COVID-19 pandemic.
