Yesterday as seen in a blog post a new Uber feature was introduced that allows users to request Uber rides for other people from their contact list even if they don’t have the app on their phones.
This new Uber feature gives Uber users the power to request rides for their loved ones easily from their Uber app.
With this new Uber feature you can set the ride pickup away from your currently. The app will automatically ask you if the ride is for a family member or a friend. You will only need to add the pickup location to request a ride on their behalf.
The rider will receive a text message with the driver’s details and a link to track the driver’s route as soon as the driver is on the way. Other details contained in the text message sent to the rider will be the Uber user paying for the ride, Uber drivers arrival time, name and mobile phone number.
The new Uber feature is said to be available on the most up-to-date app starting with over 30 countries with more addition very soon. Uber is trying to reach out to even more customers who do not have the app.
