To begin with, the user will have to download this new application from the Play Store; the app already has 10 million downloads across the world. Once the user enters the app, they’ll be guided step by step to take surveys. Initially, the user will have to enter a few details like, age, name, postal code and even income.

To show the user how the app functions, a mock survey will be provided on the home page. Once the survey is completed, the user will be eligible for more paid surveys in future. The first mock-survey will not be paid.

According to Google, the application won’t keep a track of your personal response for every survey but will keep a track of participation to ensure credits are paid. According to the app description, users can get paid up to INR 32.50 for every survey they complete.

The nature of questions can vary with every survey. The questions can range from “Which logo is the best?” to “Which promotion is most compelling?” to “When do you plan on travelling next?”. The surveys hugely depend on the data you provide Google with. The location you share, your history in shopping, all these are meticulously looked by Google before presenting you the survey.

How to get more surveys using this app?

The answer may seem obvious, but it depends on the location of your smartphone, so you must activate the geo location constantly.As it does not require much accuracy I always carry in saving battery mode (Settings> Location> Mode> Battery Save) and leave the High mode precision when I use the map really, and has been enough for this app.

Secondly, it is very useful to have enabled the Google location history. This service constantly keeps your location and tells you through Maps, places you’ve been visiting throughout the day, so simply explained. To activate just go to the side menu Maps, click on your timeline and follow the steps shown on the screen.

You may have a question on how can you take these data for sending surveys the app Google Opinion Rewards? Very easy, when the application detects that you have gone through a certain stores or you’ve gone to buy a particular place sends you surveys related to these businesses or with others nearby.

Therefore, the third key is basic routes for shopping areas, where establishments participating in the promotion is. Otherwise, the number of questionnaires sent by the app will be quite low, just some generic ones. This leaves out all the people who do not live in urban areas.
