Get to Your Events On Time with Calendar Shortcuts
When you’ve got to be somewhere, every minute counts. And digging to find an address, then copying and pasting it into the Uber app doesn’t get you there any faster. Starting today, we’ll save you the hassle with the rollout of our new Calendar Shortcuts feature.
With Calendar Shortcuts, Uber can assist with your planning. After all, we designed the new rider app around you—and our core beliefs that time is a luxury and that the information you need should always be at your fingertips. Whether it’s a flight out of town, meeting across the city, or dinner reservation with friends, it’s now one tap to get moving!
Once you connect your calendar, your upcoming meeting or appointment from your phone’s native calendar will appear as a “shortcut” on the bottom of the screen when you open the Uber app.
To get started, connect your device’s native calendar to Uber by going to Settings > Calendar Events in the app’s menu or via a card in the Uber feed. Just make sure your calendar events have an address.
Starting today, Calendar Shortcuts is rolling out to riders around the world on iOS, and is coming soon to Android. We’re giving priority access to business travelers using Uber through their company, since connecting a calendar is a top-requested feature for professionals with busy schedules.
