Google looking for willing subjects to test new products

google logo generic

Google always has internal projects being created, cool stuff we may never see or may come as future products. It has released “beta” products for testing before, such as Google Glass, but it looks as if Google is planning to take it one step further. The latest Google Play email contains a link to sign up for a user experience research study.

This program is, at the moment, very vague but there is some information. Generally, you will be giving feedback on existing and unreleased Google products. This means both software and hardware, so you just might receive a prototype device of some sorts to play around with. There will also be times where, if you live close enough, you will be asked to go to a Google office and talk to a researcher one on one. If not, you will be doing this over the internet or phone. Or you might even have a researcher come to you.

This is an exciting program that might yield some cool toys to play with, and of course it will help Google with their own products. Everyone wins! You have to be 18 years old to sign up, so don’t go lying about your age. Hit the source link to sign up and be sure to read their FAQ!

    Signed up. Figured why not? Who knows maybe I’ll get selected and get to test something cool from Google.

  • Nicholas Moline

    Thanks! Hopefully this leads to a similar experience that I had with the CR-48.

  • nmoline

    Thanks! I could always use another product like the Cr-48

  • nimslake

  • Dave Kratter

    I’ve been a Google Trusted Tester for many years, but except for testing the two-factor authentication a long time ago, I’ve never been asked to participate in anything. I did get a Cr-48 (I still use it), but that was sent to anyone who fit Google’s profile.

  • Dan Jones

    Are you sure this is current?

    In the survey to sign up, it asks which Google products you’ve used in the past month, and there are several listed that were removed more than a month ago (Reader, Latitude, Buzz).

  • Axel

    How to sign up. I don’t see the link.

  • Connor

    I signed up immediately and let a few of my friends know so they could do the same. I definitely hope I get to test for Google.

  • aranea

    I’m so signing up. Is there chance I can be selected to test Glass version 2? :)

    • SGB101

      Of course there is, as long as you have $1500

      You’d be better finding someone that has them, as they are about to let them invite 3 friends into the program. But you’ll still need $1500 sadly.

  • cacarr

    This isn’t a new program.

  • Bart

    Great opportunity. Although I doubt I’ll get chosen, I did sign up. I figure being a person over 60 and yet very technically adept and informed, I’d hope my background could help study and focus on people over 50. Although I am more experienced with hardware and software than most of my peers (and hence not necessarily “representative” of the market segment), I’d still hope I can bring an insight that those from less experienced (younger) generations cannot bring.

  • Dan

    Wow! I am a lucky winner. I love google voices in my head. Nothing is more relaxing than coming home to GVIMH. Its like being part of the google team right in my own neighborhood.. My favorite is Brenda she a candy loving sweetheart and Jimmy is great too. The best part was getting picked up in thee google Brougham Super Coach, that is my new SUPER COACH! Weheweeeee! F Ya!
