Uber finally has full support for Android Wear 2.0

 

Uber has finally arrived on Android Wear. Support for the application has been pretty much non-exsistent on Android Wear, but now, Uber users will finally be able to order rides straight from their wrist.

Uber has sort-of been available on Android Wear before, though there’s been multiple instances of Uber Wear support being pulled from Google Play. But now, there’s a standalone app available for Android Wear 2.0; however, this does mean that you’ll need to wait for your smartwatch to get upgraded to Android Wear 2.0 in order to use Uber Wear.

But, now that Uber has a standalone app for Android Wear 2.o, you won’t have to worry about being tethered to your phone. Uber Wear is able to operate independently from the smartphone application. You’ll be able to do all of the usual features straight from your wrist — order rides, check prices, arrival times, choose bookmarked locations and so on.

This does mean Uber is essentially the first big-name ride-sharing app to have its own independent application on the smartwatch platform. We imagine Lyft will soon be making its way to the game, but for now, Uber is the king if you’re in search of a ride-sharing Android Wear 2.0 app.
