Uber Shortcut 2019 – How does Uber Shortcuts work?
Uber Driver Shortcut
Uber Shortcuts is a central part of Uber’s major new app redesign. It is a dynamic app feature — essentially, it ”learns” from a passenger’s past travel experiences, and incorporates frequent trip patterns & routines into a personalized app profile for maximum convenience.
Rather than manually typing in a frequent destination (like your favorite restaurant, best friend’s house, or your workplace), the app will simply feature them as shortcuts.
What are some of the core features of Uber Shortcuts?
Uber riders will now be shown (upfront) a variety of trip “shortcuts” on the home screen of their Uber App — shortcuts which automatically predict where you might be headed.
Shortcuts is another step towards optimizing the Uber App experience — cutting down repetitive tasks and automating data-inputting, to the benefit of riders.
Some notable features of Uber Shortcuts include:
- No need to input addresses (shortcuts will remember your addresses and suggest destinations dynamically)
- Calendar Syncing (riders will be able to sync their personal calendars with Uber, so that Uber trips can all be pre-planned days or weeks in advance.
- Friends = Destinations (Uber’s new app, via shortcuts, will allow passengers to sync their Uber network with friends, tying everyone together in a virtual tapestry of Uber users — effectively allowing rides to tap on a friend’s name without inputting a physical address (in order to travel directly to wherever they are).
Alongside shortcuts, other app features will be more prominent, such as upfront pricing — making it easier to compare prices across all of Uber’s vehicle types, as well as instantly viewing your estimated time of arrival.
