Dubai-based ride-hailing group Careem announced that it is now integrated its app with Google Maps on Android and iOS devices.

The service, which is currently available to users in the United Arab Emirates, will be rolled out across the other markets in the region in the coming weeks.

The integration of Careem’s services with Google Maps means a faster ride-hailing experience for users of both apps. For users searching for directions in Google Maps, a simple tap on the ride-hailing icon on the far right will reveal the closest available Careem cars, along with the expected pick-up time and fare estimate for a ride to their selected destination.

At this point, users will have the option to open the Careem app and confirm their booking, with their pick-up and drop-off details transferring to the Careem app automatically.
