Uber just launched a new feature that's sure to earn you some brownie points with your friends and family, should you choose to use it.
Starting today, you can now request a ride for someone else from the Uber app. The feature is available in more than 30 countries; just make sure you have the latest version of the app.
We can see this being useful in a lot of different scenarios: Maybe your friend's phone is about to die after a night out so they can't request their own ride, or perhaps you want to help a loved one get to work while their car is in the shop. Maybe your grandma, who doesn't drive anymore, needs to get to a doctor's appointment and you can't take her.
Now, when you request an Uber and set a pickup that's away from your current location, the app will ask if the ride is for a friend or family member. You can select the rider from your address book, set their location, and request a ride on their behalf.
