Uber, the ridesharing app that connects riders
with driver partners, on Monday announced to roll out two new features – In-app chat and multi-destination -- that will provide convenient ride experience to the users and make their experience frictionless.
The in-app chat feature allows riders
and driver partners to get in touch with one another by the means of messages. The riders
can share their location, landmark and other information over messages with the driver partners that helps in coordinating the pickup faster and cost effective, since there is no call charges involved.
The feature allows both riders
and driver partners to see if their chats are delivered and read. This features also means that regardless of where they are located across the globe, riders
won’t have to share their phone number with one another should they have to get in touch.
The multi-destination feature, on the other hand, enables riders
to add multiple stops along their route. With this feature, riders
can add multiple layovers to drop colleagues, friends and family by adding different stops in the app itself.
