- Uber now allows you to call your driver directly from within the app for free.
- The call is placed via VoIP and doesn't reveal phone numbers to the receiver.
- The feature took four months to come to India.
Uber has launched a new feature in its cab-hailing app on Android and iOS that allows riders and drivers to contact each other via the Uber app through VoIP. With the latest update, you can now call your driver for free and not rely on your network provider’s plans to contact your Uber driver. The free voice calling is offered via VoIP, or voice over IP that was previously added for global users in October 2018. It took Uber over four months to implement the feature in India, and comes as a free solution to making calls between the driver and the rider.
