There is an argument that technology which is supposed to take us closer to people who are far away ironically takes us farther from people who are actually close. Uber turned around like fcuk your opinion and came up with a new feature which brings people closer to people close by and far away.
The latest feature by Uber allows users to travel directly to the location of another person by locating them through the GPS in their smartphone i.e your destination can now be your friend’s smartphone location.
Here is how it works:
- Sync your contacts with the Uber app.
- Type in a person’s name in the “Where to?” box.
- That person will receive a request to provide their current static location.
- Once they accept, their GPS location is used as your destination.
This new feature is everything as it gives a whole new meaning to the term link up! So now soon as you see your friends turning up on Snapchat without you, you can use their location as a destination on Uber and force yourself into the mix. Also with this new feature, bae can run, but cannot hide.
