Google map integration shows Uber as a travel option to Google Maps users on their iPhone and Android devices to help them find the best way to get between two places.
Having installed the Uber app use will be able to see an estimated UberX pickup time, fare, and travel time to their destination when searching for transit or walking directions on Google Maps.
User can now tap on the Uber card in Google Maps to get fares and estimated time to reach their destination and then they will be redirected to the Uber app to complete the booking.
Uber in November last year said the feature had been rolled out to 30 cities globally. The company had then said, “You will see the option to Uber at the bottom of the screen when you select either the transit or walking options [in Google Maps].
This update makes it more obvious when Uber is the clear choice to get to your destination-whether we’re saving you time with our short pickup and transit times, or offering an affordable price for your ride.”
