Uber announced on Thursday (27) the launch of two features for the application available for Android and iPhone (iOS). Among the new tools is the translation via Google Translate of messages sent by the app, in addition to notifications and a renewed interface to direct both drivers and passengers and facilitate the meeting when boarding in busy places, such as shopping malls and airports. The new features are expected to be available to all Uber users in the coming days.

The translation tool allows users to configure a preferred language in the application so that, if they receive a message in a foreign language, they can translate the text with just one touch. Uber will have translation support for 100 languages ??on the system, and the feature will also work with messages suggested by the app itself.
A sequence of notifications seeks to ensure that the driver and passenger meet for boarding. The tool alerts you how many minutes are left until the meeting and indicates directions for the user to reach the correct place from the departure point of the trip. The application also includes instructions for navigating in generally busy locations, such as airports, shopping malls or event venues.
The change in the application interface is geared to the moment of passenger boarding. The redesign highlights data such as license plate number, color and model, to facilitate the meeting between users for the race. The update also brings notifications with safety tips that are sent when the passenger finishes the tour and disembarks from the vehicle.
