When speaking about online business ideas with people, it is quite common to hear about simple apps that where people earn money by completing a set of tasks. By now, these apps have definitely morphed so that they target specific groups of people. This is an approach that Google seems to have taken with the Task Mate app that has now launched whose beta version has just launched in Kenya.
Task Mate is an app designed to allow anyone to take up various tasks listed and earn money for completing them. Considering they are online and simple, these tasks don’t require a lot of resources. For instance, you could be requested to answer survey questions, translate text to your local language or even rate a photo taken by someone else.
According to the tech giant, Task Mate is an app “that provides access to a variety of simple tasks posted by businesses around the world.”
The app’s beta launch was announced at Google for Kenya event today with some of the executives taking to social media to spread the word as well.
“Task Mate beta launch in Kenya marks the latest milestone in our journey. I’m excited to see how Task Mate can benefit people & businesses here, & how we can make the app even better for our users,” said Agnes Gathaiya, Country Director at Google East Africa said.
It is still not clear how much users get to earn although it does rely heavily on the kind of task one chooses to complete.
To join the beta, you will just have to install the Task Mate app on Google Play Store and tap the button to join a waitlist. This could be easier for the lucky users who happen to have a referral code.
