If you've ever requested Uber services, you know firsthand the awkwardness of standing on the corner waiting, thinking that every random slow driving vehicle is your ride. Well, thank the heavens that those days are coming to an end.
Uber is adding a glowing beacon to help eliminate those awkward moments of approaching a stranger's car and identifying you driver without question. The beacon will be displayed in the windshield of the driver's vehicle.
The ride sharing giant plans to roll out the feature in four cities globally in preparation for New Year's Eve, which is understandably an extremely busy night for any ride sharing service. This new feature will make things a lot easier for both the drivers and the Uber customer.
In addition to the beacon, Uber will be adding more vehicle details in the app. That way passengers will know exactly what type of vehicle to be on the look out for. The latest update to the Uber application also has shortcuts that allow users to save their favorite location to be picked up or dropped off. With all these new additions, hailing an Uber will be easier than ever.
