Uber is one of the best rides you can travel without being tied to your own car. However, if you're a frequent flyer, you can tire of entering the same locations in your app each time you use them. Fortunately, with Uber you can streamline this process.
It's possible you never really dealt with the settings in Uber, but there are many cool things there. By adding favorites and other saved locations, you can easily navigate to any of the places you visit most often, greatly speeding up the process. You only need to add the addresses to your Uber account.
: Find Uber Settings Menu
First go to your settings in the Uber App ( Android, iOS) by tapping the menu icon in the upper left corner, and then select " settings ".
Step 2: Set Home and Work
Under the header you can add both your home and work addresses to your saved locations. Touch Add Home. A list of the addresses to which you recently traveled will be displayed. If one of them is at home, tap on it to set it as your home. Otherwise, manually search for it and tap the result when it is displayed. You can add your work address in the same way.
You can add more saved places by tapping "More saved places". From there, tap Add Saved Location, enter an address, name it, and tap Save Location to save it. This feature is great for adding places that you visit frequently, such as bars or friends' homes.
Once you've set all your favorite locations and locations, initiate a ride by tapping "Where to?" Button in the middle of the main screen. Your home and work addresses, as well as all other saved locations, are displayed at the top of the list. Tap either Home or Work to navigate to them, or click Saved Places to expand a menu where you can pick a favorite place.
