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. Learn about all the ways Uber is improving business travel.
We’re excited to expand the Uber for Business platform beyond business travel, to include a world-class customer transportation solution, Uber Central. With Uber Central, organizations of all shapes and sizes can now easily provide on-demand, door-to-door transportation for their customers, clients, and guests.
A little over a year ago, we set out to put a new spin on an old classic–make reliable food delivery available at the tap of a button. Back then, we started by offering food in the UberEATS app from 1,000 pioneering restaurant partners in four cities. And today, more than 40,000 restaurants globally–from poke shops to pasta spots–are sharing food with customers through UberEATS. With a growing restaurant community comes more choices and more complexity. So we’re cooking up features to continue to make UberEATS easy and reliable. Here is a taste–
