Google has announced that it is testing a mobile Application dubbed Task Mate in Kenya which will allow users to earn money for doing simple tasks.
The new app lets users earn cash in exchange for completing tasks. Google asks users to complete some tasks which are related to Google Maps and Translate app.
Some tasks may require the user to go out of their house with their Android phones and take pictures of a nearby store or restaurant. Google and the app will have the access to users’ location history, as this may also add to some of the rewards.
Google said the Tasks submitted by users will help them in improving mapping services and will also bring local business online.
After completing a few tasks users will earn money as a reward for each task. In order to cash out these rewards, you need to register a payment service or an e-wallet on the app. After that, you can simply head over to their profile page and hit the “cash-out” button, and withdraw the earnings in the local currency.
Currently, the app is available only in development mode in India and Kenya but early access for it is available on the Google Play Store.
