Uber finally finds its way to Android Wear 2.0

It was promised back in Google I/O 2015 and it took a full 21 months but it’s finally here. Uber now has a standalone app on Android Wear 2.0. You don’t need to have the app installed on your phone to get it to run. You can request rides right from your wrist. Select bookmarked destinations such as your work and home. The app also lets you check prices, ETAs as well as your driver’s progress and what his or her car model and plate number is. And yes, you can follow the ride inside the car, too. The downside is the app is only available for Android Wear 2.0, which means if you don’t have one, you still don’t get the app. You can install it from the Play Store right on your smartwatch.

Uber now has mapping cars in five continents following launch in Singapore

Uber is taking one more step forward with its mapping initiative by bringing map cars to Southeast Asia through its launch in Singapore. By having these cartographic cars, which basically have drivers ride around the city state with mapping tech on top of the cars, they are trying to collect data about Singapore based on real trips. They’ve done this here in the country, in the U.S., the United Kingdom, Australia, and South Africa.

Uber’s been working on trying to get its own data on its trips instead of having to rely on Google. At the same time, it’ll help in giving exact details about a drop-off point in certain buildings and areas. However, Uber promises riders who catch these vehicles in the country will not have their pick-up and drop-off points retained and these imagery will not be made public. Plus, Uber isn’t shy to admit this could also help in pushing its self-driving initiative further.

Uber CEO quits Trump’s advisory council

Following the onslaught of criticism from Uber users and even its own employees, Uber CEO Travis Kalanick plans to step down from his seat in US President Donald Trump’s advisory council. The ride-sharing service has been under attack after being accused by people that it sought to make profit from giving rides to airport customers while a weekend protest was happening against President Trump’s immigration order. The criticism wasn’t limited to Uber users, even his employees were wondering how he could still advise the US President after that immigration ban was ordered.

During an all-hands meeting at Uber this week, at least two employees asked Kalanick what it would take to have him quit the economic council. By Thursday, Kalanick announced to his employees that he was going to step down because he didn’t want his involvement in the council to mean he was endorsing the President and his agenda. “There are many ways we will continue to advocate for just change on immigration, but staying on the council was going to get in the way of that,” Kalanick wrote in an email to his staff, which was obtained by The New York Times.
