Uber added live location sharing that lets the riders to share their precise location within the app temporarily with the drivers. This option is beneficial 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 quickly 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 where you are waiting for them.

Uber keeps spreading its services to build a long-term relationship with riders and drivers as well. The company is also working on the beacon program; the technology includes a hardware device in the driver’s windshield.
