With the latest integration update powered by Uber’s application program interface (API), users can now request a ride in Google Maps, according to a report by Uber.
In addition to requesting a ride, users will also be able to see their driver en route, contract the driver, and follow their trip status all within Google Maps.
Prior to this, Uber users could use Google Maps to compare wait times and the pricing of Uber options such as POOL, UberX, and uberXL, says the report.
Users can choose to pay in Google Maps or through the Uber app. To get started, users can go to the ride services tab on Google Maps and then tap “request” to take a ride.
For a limited time, new U.S. Uber riders will receive $15 off their first ride, according to the report.
