Uber With BBM

Uber app has always remained the most influential ride-sharing service for the users across the globe and the ride-sharing giant keeps on delighting the users time to time. After a latest Uber news, Uber’s initiative of making its services available to different messaging apps has now reached to BBM. The ride-sharing giant has extended its services to Uber users for getting profits from a market that is still emerging.

After the broke out of latest Uber new, the ride-sharing giant has recently made its services available to Facebook Messenger app and now the extension has been done to BBM. Blackberry Messenger, as a messaging app is dying out gradually but not in the parts of Indonesia, Asia, Africa and the Middle East. Nevertheless, BBM services have died virtually in Western markets following the decline of BlackBerry phones. Now, run by Indonesian telco Emtek, the app has been doing quite well in Indonesian regions mentioned above.

The ride-hailing company has tied with BBM to roll out the services. The new rollout will allow users to book their ride through “discovery” menu inside the Uber app to offer premium support. The feature will first go live for the users in countries including Africa, North America, Europe and the Middle East as per Uber’s report.

Uber’s upcoming partnership with BBM is making use of the ride-sharing giant’s web-based app services, called - m.uber. This would make it easier for BBM users to book their rides through the app at a cost that is affordable. Uber has targeted world’s fourth most populous country for obvious reasons. Additionally, the shrinking BBM services with the advent of Whatsapp has given a new ray of hope to the Uber app.

Indonesia, owing to a large number of people has the potential to bring back the lost BBM charm once again. For the same reason, Uber seems to take a logical move in order to extend its services in a whole new market.
