It's like a case of keeping the best wine until the end, as Uber has finally launched its promised app for Android Wear 2.0 after two years of keeping users expectant. Now, booking a ride has been made so easy that all you need is an Android Wear 2.0 smartwatch strapped to your wrist.
The question now is not why it took Uber two years to get this app out, but "What can this app do? And how does it work?" So if you are reading this article with these questions running through your mind, you can rest assured that you are about to get answers to them.
The Uber app for the Android wear 2.0 platform offers almost every option available except for some select few, but regardless, it still has all it takes to be considered a huge hit. Apart from giving users the option to request rides, compare prices and check the driver's progress, the app provides users with access to the incoming driver's details.
One significant feature of this app is that it is a standalone app, i.e. it can function on its own without relying on any other app. The only situation where your smartphone can come in on this one is if your smartwatch doesn't have a 4G LTE connection (most Android Wear 2.0 smartwatches have a 4G LTE network option). Other than that, the app runs on the smartwatches without needing a smartphone.
One thing that is very saddening which I would have wished wasn't true is the fact that the Uber app doesn't work on watches running on Android Wear versions lower than the Android Wear 2.0, but I hope something is done about it in earnest so guys using such smartwatches don't miss out on this great package.
On where to get the Uber app? Very easy!!! The Uber app is available to your Android Wear 2.0 smartwatch on the Google Play Store as a free download. Click below download link:
