Uber App Update Brings Design Improvements for Pickups, Message Translation

Posted by · 4474 views · Translate

Uber has announced an update to its app that brings design improvements for pickups and the ability to translate messages when chatting with a driver.

We’ve all had pickups that don’t always go as planned, but these updates provide even more peace of mind whether you’re headed home, commuting to work, or meeting friends for an evening out.

Users will now see a sequence of rotating, actionable notifications regarding their pickup: the remaining minutes before Uber arrives, where you should meet a driver, where to walk toward, and instructions on navigating an airport, arena, or event venue.

The in-app text has been made 'more comprehensible' and visible when a driver is nearing arrival. His/her/their first name, license plate detail, and car color/make/model is more prominently displayed. When your trip is about to conclude, you’ll also receive reminders about safely exiting the vehicle.

Uber is also rolling out a translation tool to help drivers and riders better communicate with each other.

Previously, the message text sent from a driver to a rider would appear in that driver’s language preference. For example, a driver’s Spanish language preference would result in Spanish text being displayed to a rider (and vice-versa), regardless if this was the rider’s preferred language. This new feature lets a rider (or driver) tap to instantly translate a message into their preferred language, across 100+ supported languages.

These features will be rolling out to riders around the world in the coming days.

You can download Uber from the App Store for free.
