Now, book Ola or Uber directly from Google Search

Commuters will get to see a tab for ride services with fare estimates and pick up times if a car is available near their location

People can now book or directly from from their smartphones in India, Google announced on Wednesday.

The users can find directions and choose from a menu of ride service options straight from app or through the mobile search browser.

This feature was made available on the latest version of Google Maps earlier this year.

"With this, users will be able to order, explore and make quick comparisons about the best-estimated taxi fare directly from results on their mobile," said Sanket Gupta, Programme Manager, Google.

Commuters will get to see a tab for ride services, both and Ola, with fare estimates and pick up times if a car is available near their location.

On request for specific information such as "to Bangalore airport" or "to Bangalore airport", the app/ browser directs the user to select a service and automatically opens the app to book the ride, all in just one tap.

In cases where the app is not installed on the device, will show a link to install the app.
