Many of us lead very busy lives and it goes without saying that every minute counts. It can be quite time-consuming to dig through an email or a message to find an address, copy and the paste it in the Uber app before we get moving. This takes up valuable time and Uber knows that, so starting today, the app is going to integrate with your calendar to help you get to where you need to go faster. It’s calling this feature Calendar Shortcuts.
Uber will assist in planning trips with Calendar Shortcuts. Once the calendar has been connected with the Uber app, any and all upcoming meets and appointments stored in the phone’s native calendar will appear as a “shortcut” on the bottom of the screen when the Uber app is launched.
From there, a ride is just a couple of taps away. This eliminates the need to dig up addresses and enter them manually in the Uber app. It saves valuable time and users are certainly going to appreciate this feature. The phone’s native calendar can be integrated with the Uber app through the Settings menu.
The ride-hailing service has confirmed that this feature is rolling out starting today to all users on iOS. It promises that Calendar Shortcuts feature is coming soon to Android.
