Finally Uber has rolled-out a new feature which allows users to make free voice calls to the driver.The new feature is a new add to the app and that can allow riders and drivers to communicate with each other over a VoIP call.
The new feature in the app for calling is available to select users with both Android and Apple iphones. The new addition in the app called “Safe Calling From Uber App’ is based on Voice of Internet Protocol, which means users will be able to make calls over data rather that voice calls.
The new feature is believed to be easier for Uber users who want to keep their number private when connecting to the driver. The in-app calling is optional and those who want to make regular voice calls can do that.
As per reports, the new feature will enable Uber to record conversations between the driver and user. To use the VoIP feature, just hit the Free Call option from the main menu and your call will be placed to the driver without leaving the app.
