Google Maps for iOS will get extra ridesharing choices

Google Maps for iOS gets more ridesharing options

Google Maps has added new ridesharing choices to its iOS app, every week after they first turned obtainable on Android. Uber was the only selection for years — as long as you’ve gotten the app in your telephone, Maps can present how a lot you’d pay for a journey if you seek for a vacation spot. You possibly can even launch the app from inside Maps should you determine to make a reserving. Whereas the brand new new ridesharing companions are definitely welcome, there’s one caveat: they’re principally providers in different nations, although one presents rides in NYC.

These new choices are: Gett for the UK, Israel, Russia and NYC; 99Taxis for Brazil; Ola Cabs for India; Hailo for the UK, Eire, Spain and Singapore; and MyTaxi for Germany, Spain, Austria, Switzerland and Poland. Just like Uber’s integration, you will want to put in these apps if you wish to see their pricing on Google Maps. When you do, you possibly can simply examine their costs with Uber’s fares (every time each can be found) and determine which service to hail.
