Uber Launches on the Windows Phone
Choice is a beautiful thing.
That’s why today we are excited to release a new Uber app for the Windows Phone, available for download now in the Windows Phone Store!
Previously, Windows Phone users accessed Uber through our mobile site, but starting today, users can connect through a native app that is optimized for the Windows Phone platform and reflects the complete Uber experience.
Users will be able to open the Uber app on their Windows Phone anywhere in the world – whether in the United States, India or France – and seamlessly request a safe, reliable ride at the touch of a button.
The availability of the Uber app – in more than 150 cities and in 41 countries – and the international adoption of the Windows Phone means that we can connect with the Windows Phone community like never before.
Windows Phone, your Uber has arrived.
We will be rolling into select cities over the coming weeks to celebrate the release of Uber for Windows Phone so stay tuned!
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.
