Uber never seizes to implement new features in the app for riders and drivers in order to enhance their experience. Now with a new update for the riders app, Uber is making it simpler for you to share your location with the drivers for pickup. Uber added live location sharing that lets the riders to share their precise location within the app temporarily with the drivers. This option is very helpful in avoiding the moments of facing trouble while telling the drivers your exact location to start the ride.

The option is available on the app home screen to share your live location with the drivers. After updating your app to the latest version available in the app store you will see a blue icon on the bottom ride side of the map. Once you book the ride you can tap on the icon to share your exact location with the driver to easily grab the ride. The icon will be blue while you are sharing your location and turns grey when you decide to turn off the sharing. You can choose between the two options anytime, and let your drivers know that where you are waiting for them.
