According to the
report, the integration shows Uber as a travel option to Google
Maps users on iPhone and Android trying to find the best way to get
between two points.

If the Uber app
is installed on the phone, the Google Maps app will show an estimated UberX pickup
time, fare, and travel time to their destination when searching for transit or
walking directions. If users find the estimated UberX fares and times to their
destination appealing, they can tap the Uber card in Google Maps, and be taken
directly to the Uber app to complete the booking.

Last year in
November, Uber had announced that the feature had been rolled out to 30 cities
globally. The company had then said, “You will see the option to Uber at the
bottom of the screen when you select either the transit or walking options [in
Google Maps]. This update makes it more obvious when Uber is the clear choice
to get to your destination-whether we’re saving you time with our short pickup
and transit times, or offering an affordable price for your ride.”
