As of this week, Romanian users can request an Uber ride right from Google Maps app, a press release informs.
“With the latest integration update, you can now request a ride, see your driver en route, contact your driver, and follow your trip status – all without having to switch over to the Uber app”, the release reads.
Those without Uber account can create one, directly in Google Maps, and will have an automatic discount of RON 15 at the first Uber ride, without the need to enter a code.
When booking an Uber ride from Google Maps, the user can verify and compare the waiting time and cost for various Uber options available in their city (uberX, UberSELECT and UberChildSeat in Bucharest or uberX and UberSKI in Brasov), see an estimation of the price, follow the driver’s route, contact the driver, and make the payment through any of the payment methods associated with the Google or Uber account.
Those who don’t see the Uber option in Google Maps, must update their app in App Store or Play Store
