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.

Terry Myerson, executive vice president of Operating Systems for Microsoft, kicked off the release of the Uber app as our rider zero on his way to the Microsoft Global Exchange conference in Atlanta.

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!
