Uber Takes Its App Down New Road with Redesign

Riders can check it during their ride.

"Certainty in price and certainty in time, we think, will get people to engage even more in UberPool", Chief Executive Officer Travis Kalanick told reporters at Uber's headquarters, referring to the service aimed at ride-sharing commuters. The new Uber app now displays a whole activity section once you're on a trip, allowing you to change Pandora stations, see nearby restaurants and attractions, and check transit times for any bus or train stations you might be headed to. And yes, there are a couple of interesting new additions that we will be taking a look at.

Integration with UberEats, the company's food-delivery service, will let users order hot meals and have them waiting at their destination. Passengers must opt into this service. Now, when you open the app, you'll be greeted by a single field that says "Where to?"

To try out Uber's new app, I made a decision to call a cab for my wife from her place of work to home, from my office. Uber head of North American operations Rachel Holt said the company does not tolerate discrimination, "but studies like this one are helpful in thinking about how we can do even more". The company also notes in its press release that it will soon add calendar integration to the app, and that once it does, the locations specified in those calendar events will appear as shortcuts in the app. As long as their locations are shared with you, all you need to do is sync your contacts with the Uber app and type their names in the "Where to?" search bar, and your Uber driver will be able to get you there. Uber will then send a push notification to your friend requesting permission to use their current location as the destination point for your trip.

If you're a regular Uber user, the app will also figure out your regular journeys and create shortcuts to make it one button to fire up a ride.

"Meet a taco at your doorstep is basically the feature".

For UberX and UberPOOL, you can also know the time you are expected to arrive at your destination. It has been improved upon and added with exciting new features.

Some of the changes in the overhaul include allowing users to connect their calendars to Uber so that the company can fill in a rider's destination for an upcoming meeting or appointment.

And, as mentioned above, the new app also hopes to make it easier to find a good pickup spot for your driver. It's now much easier to compare the cost of all your options with upfront fares. With Uber Feed, you can change music in the vehicle through Pandora or order a meal with Uber Eats.
