SEM Agency | Uber & Google

SEM Agency | Google has updated its search engine for mobile users with a small but handy feature that lets you hail cabs straight from results pages.

The next time you search for directions to a location in the Google app on your iOS or Android device, you’ll see options to hail a cab below the map, along with real-time fare estimates and wait times. Tapping through will launch the cab service’s app you have installed, so you can proceed to book your ride with your location and destination pre-filled.

A new era of tech events has begun

We’re back in New York this November for the 4th edition of our growth-focused technology event.

The new feature seems to be available internationally, as we found when testing it in India and The Netherlands. It works well with Uber, but not so much with Ola in India: After selecting the local cab service from my search results for Bangalore’s international airport, I still had to manually enter my destination when the app launched.

In case you don’t have the necessary app installed, Google will link you to the app store to download it for your device. Google will help you find your way around town. Get an Uber straight from the search results and even see how long it may take for the Uber to arrive. Your SEO agency should give you all of the information on Google’s latest updates so you stay informed on all of the ways you can utilize Google’s new tools.
