WhatsApp partnership with Uber
Uber and WhatsApp have announced a partnership this year. Uber has signed an agreement with WhatsApp. So customers will now be able to book Uber Cabs through WhatsApp.
This feature is built on the WhatsApp Business Platform. Uber will be implemented in Lucknow on an experimental basis. It will then be expanded to other cities.
This feature allows customers to book Uber cars, Uber Moto and Auto. With the option to book a car on WhatsApp, there is no need to download the Uber app.
WhatsApp started the payment feature considering the problems of the users. However, due to some restrictions, the number of users of these features was low. WhatsApp now has regulatory approval to double the number of users for payment services in India.
