Ride with Uber, Pay with Google
With Uber, you’ve always been able to leave your wallet behind. But now, you can keep it on your phone, and not have to carry anything extra. Even if you left your wallet in El Segundo, and got gotta get it, you can now sign up for Uber through Google Wallet and head back to that nice little pub.
That’s right – Uber is announcing a new integration with Google Wallet, which means that even if your wallet looks like this, you don’t need to worry about it.
With this integration, signing in and signing up on our Android app is faster than ever. Here’s how it works:
*at this time, Google Wallet is only available to Android users in the US. We’re always adding features for our users across countries and platforms as they become available.
We’re proud to be demonstrating this integration with other great partners at the annual Google I/O conference this week. If you’re in San Francisco, please stop by to say hello.

Today, we are excited to announce that Uber will give $5.5M to support a new robotics faculty chair as well as three fellowships at CMU. This gift is part of a partnership we announced earlier this year. In addition, we’re pumped to be part of a growing innovation ecosystem in Pittsburgh that includes world leading research institutions and companies, as well as an increasing number of start-ups.
A new report conducted in partnership with Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) reveals that when empowered with more transportation options like Uber, people are making better choices that save lives.
