Google has come up with a new service exclusively for Indian users for now. The service allows usersto complete simple tasks to complete and earn money in return. According to a Reddit post, the tasks are simple, sourced from "businesses around the world," and are categorized as "Sitting or Field" tasks. Some sitting tasks include transcribing, recording spoken sentences, and translating from English to your local language, while field tasks involve taking photos of shopfronts for use in improving mapping details.The app is still in beta mode and can be accessed only via an invite.

The app's screenshots show the users can see the amount earned from their approved tasks as well as the amount for their tasks pending in review. The app also shows the total number of tasks completed, your level, and your accuracy. The tasks can be completed anytime and anywhere according to the app's description on the Play Store. It is unclear how businesses make requests to Google for crowdsourced tasks or whether they have to pay for them.

Users will be able to withdraw their earnings in their local currency. To do that, they will have to register an e-wallet or account with their payment partner. When that is done, earnings can be withdrawn by hitting the "Cash Out" button.Google Task Mate is currently available on an invite-only basis and exclusive for India. However, it may expand to all users as well as other countries in the future.
