Set dropoff on map

You can now set your dropoff location on the map in passenger app. A highly requested feature that we have long been debating on. Multiple user experience studies showed us that our customers were right and that users actually don’t always know the exact address of where they are going. But they can point it on the map! They might also just remember the street, so they would want to search it and then be able to adjust the location on the map. Going through all those use cases we have developed a simple, intuitive and powerful design, blending in the current UI. You probably won’t even notice anything has changed until you want to use the feature.
The app updates will be rolled out in the coming days. Hope you enjoy it.
