Earn Google Play store credit with the Opinion Rewards app

The Google Play store offering has grown to encompass music, magazines, books and videos, and earlier this year, it crossed a significant milestone with the launch of its millionth app – and one of the latest additions to the store’s software ranks is one that will help Android users to enjoy even more from it.

Google Opinion Rewards is a free app from the company’s Consumer Surveys division, which pays participants with credit that can be used in the Google Play store, in exchange for answering a few short questions every now and then. The number of questions that you’ll be asked, and the amount that you will be paid, will vary from survey to survey; for example, the folks over at Pocket-lint, received $1 of store credit for their answers to six questions. The questions themselves shouldn’t be too taxing either; Google cites examples such as “Which logo is best?” and “When do you plan on traveling next?”

You can download the app from Google Play right now, but it is currently available only to those in the United States. If you want to find out more about the app before downloading, check out the video below.

Google is opening up its mobile survey platform to researchers in the coming weeks. The company says that it already provides research products to major consumer brands such as P&G (formerly Procter & Gamble), Lowe’s and Priceline. Those interested in learning more about the business side of Google’s research services can visit the Consumer Surveys website.

Tried this when it came out a few days ago - the app used to crash, after an update I filled out some info and now it has been greyed out telling me I'll get notified when I'm allowed to use the app.

I think it's a cool idea, and Google has the dosh to give out. I earn my first $1 a day or two ago!! LOL The questions were about politics, about 10 in all.

Great idea, nobody cares about their privacy as long as you give them one dollar.

Don't know what privacy has to do with anything here when all they want is an opinion?

Surveys like this have always existed, usually over phone lines, and you didn't get anything. I've answered a Gallup poll in the past for fun, and it's way more than six questions!

I know right! I'd be devastated if companies found out I was planning on buying a new car in 2015 or going on holiday next year! Damn I just let the Cat out of the bag for free!

Doesn't that seem absolutely ridiculous in this day and age? Moreso because it's an app on a cell phone, the perfect opportunity to gather research from a much larger audience.

So silly.

Its probably legal reasons, because every country is complicated with rules on sweepstakes etc.

Oh I know the reasons. It's still silly that we have such limitations today. It's a freakin' survey app.
