Google began testing a new branded service. It is called Task Mate and the developers gave it the following description: вЂњEarn money by performing simple tasks on your smartphoneвЂќ.
Task Mate application is already available for users in India. Money can be received by writing down certain phrases, taking pictures of signboards of companies and institutions, finding out the details in stores, and so on.
Rewards are paid in real Indian rupees and not any points or discounts. Moreover, the reward may be transferred directly to a bank account.
The concept is similar to already available everywhere Google Opinion Rewards, but the real money this application does not bring. In it Google conducts surveys, responding to which the user deposits to his Google Play account.
It is still unclear whether Google is going to run Task Mate outside of India.
