Uber gives the lowdown on the new features available in its revamped Uber Driver app.
If you didn t already know, Uber actually has two mobile apps on Google Play and i S App Store. There s the regular Uber app that you should already be wellac uainted with, and there s the Uber driver-partner speci c app, called Uber Driver.
The Uber Driver app is designed from the ground up to provide Uber drivers with all the information they need to make the most out of their time on the ride-hailing platform. Uber drivers don t necessarily have to work around the clock, as they have the exibility of working whenever they please – regardless of whether it s 12:00pm or 12:00am. All they have to do, is open up the app, and hit the Go nline button.
nce online, Uber s intelligent dispatch algorithm will attempt to pair the Uber driver with trip requests from within his or her immediate vicinity, thus preventing the driver from having to travel unnecessarily long distances just to pick up a passenger. nce the passenger is approaching his or her drop-off point, the Uber Driver app will automatically inform the driver of any new ride requests within the same area, thus shortening wait times as a result. The Uber Driver app also contains a live heat map for drivers to determine where and when is the most pro table time to start driving.
Lastly, the Uber Driver app will allow drivers to track their earnings in real time, and provide them with detailed reports of their weekly earnings. There are also metrics that will help them optimize their driving pattern, which in turn would result in higher pro ts.
