This works just as it sounds; users will be able to pre-schedule a ride ahead of time and Uber promises users that it'll arrive on-time, otherwise they'll get their money back via the way of Uber credit.
The first of such tools, called 'Spotlight, allows riders to turn their screen a specific color, so as to flag down their driver in a crowded location.
Uber has launched a new way for riders to find their driver, with a glowing beacon on the windshield.
Uber makes it easy for your driver to get close to your location, but there are times when that last few hundred feet can be a major hassle ...
Most people use Uber as situations arise but sometimes, you know well in advance when you'll need transportation (if you have an early flight or an important meeting, for example).
The feature builds on another feature Uber rolled out a year ago, called Beacon. Messages are then read out loud to the driver. If your driver is using a beacon, that'll be used instead of the Spotlight feature. Drivers will receive a message so they know to look for, say, a yellow screen rather than a pink or green one. If you set a ride up in the future, Uber now guarantees your ride will arrive at the specified time. You can download Uber from the App Store for free.
As usual, messages are read aloud to the driver so that they're not distracted from the road.
Uber says that it's still working on rolling out Beacons, which are coming to 14 new cities this week, but it's today launching a halfway house solution, reports The Verge. Now it's even easier to share a tip ("I'm wearing a red jacket"), or send your driver a quick pre-populated update like "be right there" with a single tap.
