Tech giant Google has recently partnered with cab hailing apps Ola and Uber which will now allow users to check if there are any taxis available in their vicinity through the Google Map.
It would also be better if the users have the Uber and Ola apps installed, this would help them show the fare estimates and pick up time and also if any car is available in their vicinity.
Users would have an option to select from either uber GO and uberX services while the Ola users can select from Ola Mini, Ola Micro and Ola Sedan options. After the service is selected the users would be directed to the Uber or Ola app to request the ride with one tap.
Google in a blog post mentioned that when the latest version of Google Maps will be used on your mobile for searching direction, there would be a dedicated tab with information of cab services.
The blog also mentioned that this new feature on the Google maps app will be started on Wednesday and very soon it will be coming to the iOS.
