Millions of people around the world are happily using this amazing transportation service because it’s worthy in every way.
Here’s a quick rundown of a few Uber app tips and tricks that will allow you to master this service in the most productive way.
Let’s get started.
Edit Pick Up Location
While booking a ride in a rush we often enter the wrong pickup location and then there’s a whole one-hour struggle of the driver trying to locate you for picking you up from the right spot. Well, to save you from this hassle, Uber allows you to edit the pickup location even after your booking has been confirmed. So, if you’ve input wrong pickup location on the app, and the booking is confirmed, you will see a small “Edit” button on the main screen. Tap on “Edit” and enter new and accurate pickup location, or simply drag the pin, from where the driver has to pick you up.
Save Frequent Locations
Do you frequently use Uber for going to work or while coming back home, on an everyday basis? Well, in this case, you don’t have to enter the whole address every day while booking a cab. Uber app allows you to save frequent locations and you can make them as “Favorites” to avoid yourself from entering the address each time you book a cab ride. Head on to Uber settings, here will see previously saved shortcuts button named “Home” or “Work” etc. Tap on that option and let the app know the address of your workplace and residential address, and once you’re done updating then save the changes.
Share Trip Status with Friends and Family
Yes, Uber understands that your loved one’s care for you! If your cab is running late for any reason, just feel free to share the current trip status with your friends or family so that they can wait for you without losing their peace of mind. Open active ride, tap on the Share button, select the names of contacts from the list so that they know your exact time of arrival.
Know Your Uber Rating
Just how you rate your cab drivers, in the same way, there’s a special feature where passengers get rated to about their behavior during the cab ride. To know your Uber rating, head on to Settings, a pop-up menu will appear on the left, and there you can see your rating right below your name.
Unlock Snapchat Filters
We’re all fans of Snapchat filters, right? So, why not use it along with the Uber app? If the Snapchat app is already installed on your phone, open the active ride window and there you will see an option of “Unlocking Snapchat filters” at the bottom. Tap on that option to enable Snapchat filters on Uber, so next time when you take a selfie, you will be able to add a custom filter that mentions your ETA.
