To begin, install the preferred dependency manager for PHP, Composer.

Now install this component:

$ composer require google/cloud-tasks

This component supports both REST over HTTP/1.1 and gRPC. In order to take advantage of the benefits offered by gRPC (such as streaming methods) please see our gRPC installation guide.


Please see our Authentication guide for more information on authenticating your client. Once authenticated, you'll be ready to start making requests.

$project = 'example-project';
$location = 'us-central1';
$queue = uniqid('example-queue-');
$queueName = $client::queueName($project, $location, $queue);

// Create a queue
$locationName = $client::locationName($project, $location);
$queue = new Queue([
    'name' => $queueName
$client->createQueue($locationName, $queue);

echo "$queueName created." . PHP_EOL;

// List queues
echo 'Listing the queues' . PHP_EOL;
$resp = $client->listQueues($locationName);
foreach ($resp->iterateAllElements() as $q) {
    echo $q->getName() . PHP_EOL;

// Delete the queue


This component is considered GA (generally available). As such, it will not introduce backwards-incompatible changes in any minor or patch releases. We will address issues and requests with the highest priority.

Removal of pull queue

The past version (V2beta2) supported pull queues, but we removed the pull queue support from V2/V2beta3. For more details, read our documentation about the removal.
