Whether you want to book a ride or pay for your Uber ride, the new Google Maps app update on Android will let you do everything.
If you want to use the new integration in Google Maps, you first will need to have an Uber account. After you sign in, the Google Maps app will allow you to book your Uber ride, and then connect through GPS with the driver. You will be able to see where your Uber driver is and how long it will take your Uber driver to get to you. You will also be able to check out cool information about where you are going while you are in the Uber with the new Google Maps integration.
Google Maps also has new features that are not specific to Uber. For instance, you can see the various ride options that you have around you depending on your location. You will see whether there is public transportation such as busses or subways, and this is great if you are visiting a new city or town. You will notice that there is a map on the top and a user interface carousel that shows you all of the options you can choose from in terms of your ride options. If you click on Lyft or Uber, you will now be shown the ride choices and also payment choices for each service. There might also be special promotions running on Uber, and the Google Maps integration will show you these promotions that you could qualify for as well. This will help save you money on your next Uber ride, and of course, that is always handy.
