Have you ever opened up a food delivery app like Uber Eats and spend an hour trying to decide what to eat? With so many restaurants at your fingertips, you can feel very spoiled for choice. However, the next time you’re stuck, maybe trying inserting an emoji to help Uber Eats recommend some places for you.
In what feels like a rather novel update to its platform, it seems that Uber Eats will now allow users to search its mobile app using emojis. This means that if you’re craving a burger, just type in the burger emoji and Uber Eats will pull up burger joints that are around your area that you can pick it up from or order. You can also try other emojis like the pizza emoji, and so on.
We’re not sure how this is supposed to be easier since typing “burger” or “pizza” would produce the same results, but like we said, it is a fun update. It might also come in handy if you’re in a foreign country and want to look for food but don’t know how to type it out in the local language, so that’s probably one of the more useful ways of taking advantage of the update.
This feature will be available in the new pickup maps inside of the Uber Eats Android and iOS app, as well as its website.
