Uber is an on-demand service that lets you request a private driver in more than 40 countries.
We envision a day when there is no coordination necessary to take an Uber ride. Simply push the button, and the rest is essentially on cruise control: the car quickly shows up at exactly the right place and whisks you away to your destination via the best possible route. The latest rider and driver app releases take us one step closer to that world with two new features:
● Destination entry in the rider app. With this update, we’ve made it quick and easy to enter your destination into the rider app, and the driver automatically sees what you’ve entered at pick-up time. You can literally skip the step where you tell the driver where you’re going.
● Turn-by-turn navigation in the driver app. With one tap, the driver can enable turn-by-turn navigation to the destination you’ve provided. There’s no need to juggle multiple apps or waste time typing in an address.
Both features are live now. You can download Uber from the App Store for free.
