If you use Uber and Google Maps to get around your city, your life just got easier.

You can now book, complete and pay for an Uber ride without leaving Google Maps. Even if you don’t have the Uber app, you sign into your existing account to book a ride and track your driver, all within Google Maps.

Google Maps is also expanding its location services so that you can browse information about your destination while en route, such as restaurant menus, store hours, contact info, and more.

In Google Maps, find the “ride services” tab. This will show you a list of available options such as Uber and Lyft, as well as the estimated cost of each.


Learn the latest trends, insights and best practices from the brightest minds in media and technology. Sign up for SMW Insider to watch full-length sessions from official Social Media Week conferences live and on-demand.
