With the pandemic, many workers have had to go home with computers to stay connected from there. But few people came up with the idea that, perhaps, one day we would not even need a PC, but a smartphone with which to deposit hard cash at the orders of Google itself.
The point is that Mountain Viewers are launching a limited crowdsourced plan for Android called Task Mate that is going to take care of that: to pay us a small (very small) amount of money to perform tasks with our smartphone in such a way that, periodically, we commit to complete a series of previously cataloged jobs within the application .
Why are they going to pay us?
At the moment this Task Mate app is only accessible by invitation For this reason, it is circulating in a very limited way and, for the moment, its distribution has been limited to countries such as India and Kenya, focusing on orders that will be required, mainly, by companies that will presumably need a much more labor force. economical than usual. At least if we attend to the type of orders they make us.
Of course, unlike the Google Opinion Rewards program that paid users with credit in the Android Play Store, here In Task Mate there is an economic reward with real money that the participants will receive through an online payment platform. In this way, we stop trading digital items and actually get small amounts to spend on whatever we want.
But, for what tasks can we get money with this program? Well, as can be seen in the screenshots that have emerged from some users who are testing it, Task Mate can pay us to “record phrases”, “transcribe phrases” or “take pictures of shop windows”. As we complete these orders, small amounts of money are added, ranging between 0.20 and 0.50 dollars (0.17 and 0.42 euros) per packages of 10 transcribed or spoken phrases, respectively, and We can always accept as much work as we have time and, above all, we print quality.
In a support document of the app it can be read that the user gets “tasks based on their performance, which includes factors like your accuracy or if you have violated any of our policies […] When your performance increases or pending tasks are reviewed, you get new tasks. When an applicant needs more work and adds it to the platform, they should find more tasks. “
