Uber has just introduced a new feature where you can Uber directly to meet someone instead of a location. So this means you can directly Uber someone when you want to meet say, a friend at a mall or if you are joining your colleagues for drinks.
Here’s how it works:
- Sync your contacts with the Uber app
- Type in a friend’s name in the “Where to?” box
- Your friend will receive a request from Uber to provide their current static location
- Once they accept, their location is used as your destination and you can be on your way!
To help your friends and family know when they can expect you to arrive, Uber will share your ETA with them after you’re on your way to their location. They’ll get updates just like if you decided to share your ETA on any trip. So skip the back and forth, forget the address, and get straight to whom you’re meeting up with.
