What is Google Task Mate App?
Google Task Mate is an app by Google where users can earn money by completing simple tasks. Task Mate evolved from user research excursions to India, Brazil, Mexico, and Kenya, where it became evident that people require more possibilities to earn money.
Businesses need all kinds of information to get things done. Such as understanding popular brands in Mexico City, the best Billboard spots in Nairobi, or collecting pictures of lamps in Delhi to train a model. Collecting reliable information can be a big task, and sometimes the best way to solve big challenges is to think a little smaller.
Taskmate is a micro-tasking platform made by Google. It helps you complete complex projects by breaking big tasks into small ones, tasks that people with local insights can complete and get paid for. Using the TaskMate app, taskers from all over the world provide local information by picking up simple tasks like filling out surveys, recording audio samples, or collecting images. Use TaskMate to create and customize your own tasks from scratch, or use a library of templates to get it done faster.
While we already have the Google Opinion Rewards app that allows users to answer questions and surveys in exchange for Play Store credits. However, unlike Google Opinion Rewards, businesses across the world will be able to post tasks in Task Mate and not just Google. Also, users will be able to cash out their earnings through third-party payment apps and not as play store credits.
The app currently has 1,000,000+ installs on Google Playstore and is in Early Access stage.

I no longer have tasks. How can I get more tasks?
Tasks are given based on your performance. Multiple factors can affect new tasks such as your accuracy and any previous policy violation etc. When your performance increases or pending tasks are verified, you get new tasks. However, this depends on the requester of the task.
I see a message that “this task isn’t right for me.” what does this mean?
Before accessing the task, the requesters of some tasks may ask for a specific skill set, which will be judged via certain questions. You may not have provided the most fitting answers to these questions. This means that this task isn’t fully suitable for you. This assessment has no impact on your accuracy score. Task Mate provides a wide variety of tasks. Check other tasks that might be better suited for you.
Why does it take so long to open a task?
Due to the popularity of certain tasks, when you open tasks, you might experience delays. Make sure you are connected to the internet and refresh the screen. If the issue remains, wait for a few minutes and check again later.
Why was my task result rejected & my accuracy dropped?
If other Taskers don’t agree with your answer, tasks will be rejected. This might affect your accuracy. The requester can’t reject tasks but the requester can perform a “spot check” on your work. As a reminder, if you don’t know the answer to a question, rather than risk an accuracy drop, click Skip.
Why are the images not loading?
Sometimes, the images provided by a requester might not load correctly. If this happens, either skip the task or check again later. If you notice this problem exists for more than 24 hours, contact us with the name of the task.
Is it required to provide my demographic information?
It’s optional to provide your demographic information. If you provide this information, Task Mate uses it to show you the most relevant tasks.
