Tech­ni­cally Speak­ing: Take Uber to friends, not places

The Denver Post - - TECH KNOW -

Uber now lets you re­quest a ride to a per­son, rather than a des­ti­na­tion. To use the fea­ture, you sync your con­tacts with the Uber app. When you type a friend’s name in the “where to?” box, your friend gets a re­quest from Uber to pro­vide a lo­ca­tion. If they ac­cept, your driver gets the lo­ca­tion and your friend gets your ETA. (No word on what hap­pens if your friend moves on to the next bar be­fore your ar­rive.) And if you feel like Snap­ping a selfie on the ride, you can do so di­rectly from the Uber app, part of a new in­te­gra­tion with Snapchat and Uber.
