Recently, Uber and Facebook teamed up to deliver quick and easy transportation to the Facebook Messenger app. This allows anyone with a Messenger account to easily order a ride when they are making plans over Messenger. Transportation on Messenger is another step forward for Uber by integrating itself into popular apps like they did with Google maps.
Convenience and Forward Thinking
This type of convenience and forward thinking has kept Uber ahead of the game. Taxi companies have fallen to the street side due to the big moves that rideshare companies have taken. Bringing Uber rides to Messanger targets the type of demographics that Uber is after in the 18-40 age range which makes this partnership ideal for global expansion.
Try the Messenger App
If you want to give it a try, first download the latest version of the Messenger app. From the conversation view select the more menu and pick Transportation. You’ll be able to request a ride and be on your way in a matter of minutes.
