Uber just announced something very good.
Uber will be releasing a new update in July which will allow background location tracking of the user. This would help riders in an even faster pick-ups system.
“For example, these changes would allow Uber to ask for access to a rider’s location when the app is running in the background and get people on their way more quickly,” Uber announced today on its blog. “In addition, these changes would allow Uber to launch new promotional features that use contacts — for example the ability to send special offers to riders’ friends or family. In either case, users will be in control: they will be able to choose whether to share the data with Uber.”
