How to book an Uber ride on WhatsApp: Step-by-Step Guide


Uber Announced the ability to book rides directly through WhatsApp in India this week. The new feature does what it says, it lets you book an Uber ride quickly without the hassle of opening the Uber app. But as simple as it sounds, some people find it confusing as they try to book a cab on WhatsApp themselves.

In this story, we will show you how you can easily book an Uber ride on WhatsApp in a matter of seconds. Unlike the Uber app, which will require you to open and log in to book a ride, you can simply send pickup and drop-off instructions to your most used (probably) app — WhatsApp.

how to book uber ride through whatsapp

step 1: Open WhatsApp on your phone and send ‘Hi’ or ‘Hi Uber’ to this WhatsApp number (+91 7292000002). You can also scan this QR code with your phone’s camera app to get started.

step 2: Now, you need to send your pickup and drop-off location.

step 3: After following the above step, you will get the expected fare, which will show you how much you will have to pay for your specific ride.

step 4: Lastly, you need to confirm the ride.

As soon as a nearby driver accepts your request, you will get a notification on WhatsApp itself. And after that, you can track all the details of your ride in the chat.

noteworthy point

  • Having said that, there are a few things you need to consider before you get started. Firstly, you can book a ride through WhatsApp only if you have signed up with your mobile number. If you have used the email/password method to book the journey, you will not be able to use this facility.
  • Another thing to note is that this feature currently works only in the Delhi NCR region. But we expect Uber to expand capacity to other regions including Mumbai, Bangalore and other cities.
  • Uber has offered support for both English and Hindi languages, which means that, apart from English, you can also type a Hindi word and ride to your office or any other place in the above area.
