Now when you open Google Maps, it will show you a dedicated tab with information for cab services—in addition to the existing driving, public transport, or walking options you’re familiar with. You wll be able to compare all your commuting options right from within the Google Maps app.
From today, if you are looking for a cab service in major cities in India, you’ll be able to choose from Uber or Ola cab services. If you have a provider’s app installed, you’ll be able to see fare estimates and pick up times and if a car is available near you.
Uber users will be able to choose from the various services, while Ola customers can choose from their options.
Once the service is selected, it will direct you to the Uber or Ola app for you to request your ride with one tap.
The new feature will be available on Android devices and will be soon launched in iOS.
