The  carpooling giant Uber seems to make some change in its app and the services in the coming time. The company started with the tipping options for the riders. Have you ever tipped your driver after the ride , when you feel like giving some extra for his well behave and excellent driving. Now Uber integrated the option of tipping to the Uber drivers with a single click .

The company enrolled the new view feature i the app with name tipping . Driver those who want are interested in getting the tip just need to download the new version of Uber app. After the completion of the ride the rider will get the tipping suggestion with the rating field. There is already some tipping amount suggestion like $1,$2,$3 or you can tipp different amount. In case you don't wanna tip instantly to the driver and wanna do it later , don't be upset Uber have give the time of 30 days within you can tip the driver for that ride.

The new tipping feature is firstly released only in the three cities including seattle, Minneapolis and houston. The announcement was made by the company on tuesday and the function is made available the same day. The company also promise to roll out the feature in july nationwide.

Uber is ben in news lately not for any new advancement in the service for some ungrateful purposes. Firstly the temporary absence of the CEO Travis Kalanick and a week after the resignation news. The company also faces the allegations against the driver's behaviour , sexism , mishandeling the riders . Google spin-off also filed a lawsuit against the Uber for stealing the self driving concept. Probably the worst time facing by the company and it need to do something good for the business.

Uber added this new tipping function under the ‘180 days of change’ plan . It may be some kind of PR campaign to repair the company's damaged business and image.

The new fashion of tipping to the drivers is very beneficial for the drivers as they have the chance to earn more. The drivers were having some issues with their pay cut on the basis of rating and rider’s experience. The tipping option will neutralize the loss they have to bear. Additionally the tipping will inspire the drivers to give their best to the riders in order to get the maximum tipping in return so it can be seen a win-win situation for Uber.

There is no doubt that Uber is ruling in the carpooling service across the globe. However the recent incidents put a question over its service and security issues . The company is taking all the problem seriously and started acting one by one along with the advancements
