Google is currently testing a new paid crowdsourcing app, called Task Mate, (in India). The app which is, however, available on the Playstore will reward users for completing small tasks. But instead of Play Store credits, Task Mate promises to pay users in their local currency (Ksh).
I have downloaded the app myself and it seems it will be available for Kenyan users as there is an option to use local languages like Luo, Kikuyu, Swahili, Luhya, Kamba, Maasai and even Sheng as the default language on the app.
However, The Task Mate app as I will show you in some screenshots is currently available in Early Access, and it’s “limited to selected testers” through a referral system. This means even with the app downloaded you will still need a referral code to join.
How does Task Mate work?
According to the Play Store description, the app will offer users nearby tasks that can be completed for money. Users will then be able to cash out their earnings by linking an e-wallet account to the app or by using the in-app payment partner.
The data collected by such tasks will help Google “improve mapping services and bring business in your local area online.” The Sitting Tasks, on the other hand, will include things like transcribing sentences or recording sentences shown on the app. While the listing doesn’t go into any further detail about the tasks, it reveals that the tasks will be “simple,” and they will originate from “businesses around the world.” This leads us to believe that the company may launch Task Mate in other regions in the future.
As expected, there are multiple sources claiming to offer you a referral code. DO NOT BUY codes. That is a SCAM
