Uber, one of the most popular ride-sharing app in the country and across the globe has announced its new driver app in India today. The app is completely rebuilt from the ground up and provides more simple and personalized experience, designed to support drivers and delivery riders on every moment of their journey.
New features in the Driver App
Earnings tracker: The new real-time Earnings Tracker lets drivers know—at a glance—how much they earned on their last trip, and makes it easy to track progress toward their goals.
Status bar: Provides real-time updates on market conditions around them and opportunities for more trips nearby. When a driver taps an opportunity, the app will provide an optional navigation to the recommended area.
Notifications: This feature lets drivers see messages about upcoming earning opportunities, feedback from their riders, and information about their account
Driver profile: Gives drivers the opportunity to showcase what they do outside of Uber, and allows riders to learn more about their driver and find new ways to connect.
Driver App Basics: A comprehensive guide to getting started with Uber that will be available to drivers in the coming months.
In India, the app is currently available to select driver partners in Kochi and Chennai. It will be rolled out in a phased manner to driver and delivery partners across the country over the coming months, said the company.
“The launch of the new partner (drivers and courier partners) app is a key milestone for
Uber. It truly reflects our commitment to the people who have been our partners in growth.
We have built this app by listening to what they needed and shaped it alongside them – over
100 partners from Bangalore were a part of the global beta launch. Our teams spent time
on-ground, interacting with partners through group sessions, ride alongs and in person
meetings to gather inputs. Every piece of their feedback was important and it was
incorporated into building an app that meets their needs, every moment of their journey,”
said, Pradeep Parameswaran, Head of Central Operations, Uber India & SA.
