Uber Added EV, Party Buses, Stadium Food, And More On Latest APP Update

Uber has unveiled a series of new features aimed at capturing the entire journey.

Uber aims to become a “super app” to diversify its services and potentially increase revenue in the long run.

This summer, the company is expanding its U.K. app to include trains, buses, airlines and car rentals.

The features, announced during its Go/Get virtual event, include:

Uber Travel

Uber gathers booking information and arranges flight, hotel and meal plans in one place after a user links their Gmail account to the app.

The feature will be available in the United States on Monday and in Canada in the coming weeks.

Uber Charter

People will be able to book large vehicles such as a party bus, a passenger van or a coach directly through the app, with prices displayed in advance.

Uber Eats at Stadiums

Uber Eats and Postmates are now offering in-venue ordering at select stadiums across the United States and France. Users can place orders at snack stands in their stadiums and skip the line when their food is ready.

The service will be offered at Dodger Stadium and Angel Stadium in California; Yankee Stadium in New York; Capital One Arena in Washington, D.C.; Minute Maid Park in Houston; PayPal Park in San Jose, California; and Roazhon Park in Rennes, France.

Voice Ordering

Customers only have to say “OK Google” and ask for a meal at an Uber Eats restaurant.

Uber has begun rolling out the service globally in English, with other languages to follow in the coming months.

Uber Comfort Electric

Users will be able to travel in a premium EV, such as a Tesla or Polestar, as a result of this upgrade. The function went live in Los Angeles, San Francisco, San Diego, and Dubai on Tuesday, and it’s anticipated to roll out to other cities soon.

EV Hub and Charging Map

For drivers interested in learning more about electric vehicles, the business has launched a new in-app system. The EV Hub is marketed as “a one-stop shop where they (drivers) can get information and incentives to join the electric revolution, and even compare the cost of ownership of an EV with a non-EV.”
