Android and iOS users who try to keep the number of apps installed on their handsets as low as possible will surely enjoy the latest update received by Google Maps. Thanks to it, there is no longer any reason to use Uber's dedicated app, since Google Maps now fully integrates all its features.

The latest version of Google Maps allows its users to book, complete, and pay an Uber ride without the need to use any other app. To properly accommodate Uber, the interface has been updated, offering a view of the local map on top and a carousel UI for the various rides available at the current location below. Tapping a provider brings up a list of ride and payment choices, also including any coupons or promotions that may be active at that moment.

The updated ride services experience for Google Maps users is available worldwide since yesterday.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
