Uber, the taxi aggregator has collaborated with WhatsApp where users will be allowed to book a ride via WhatsApp. The new feature has been rolled out for the users who reside in the Delhi-NCR region. Many users reported to have got the update for the feature by this week and are expected that further users will get the update soon.

The WhatsApp Uber integrator was reportedly rolled out in Lucknow for the first time in December, last year. The chatbot could be used in English and Hindi- depending on the lounge the rider would like to communicate.
