Continuing their trend to make information more easily accessible without having to open actual apps, Google announced some new additions to the Google Maps app on both Android and iOS. Earlier this year Google added a new tab for ride-sharing services when users look for directions. Today they announced two new partners were added – Lyft and Gett.
With the addition of Lyft and Gett, Google says they now have nine ride-sharing partners available in over 60 countries. Users can access Lyft, Gett and others by tapping on the ride services tab. This will bring up a list of nearby service partners along with fare estimates and pick-up times. Google says the results will also display the different types of services that are available from partners, like a Lyft Line ride through Lyft.
The new Lyft options will be appearing throughout the U.S. market when users search for directions in Google Maps. Gett will only be available in New York City. You can get the Google Maps app using the link below.
