The new update received by this service brings full Uber integration, as well as a new user interface for the section showing the ride options available at current location.

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.
