BlackBerry Messenger (BBM) now offers Uber integration to all users


BlackBerry has just announced that it has partnered with Uber to bring BBM users around the world access to the ride-on-demand service through its application. BBM Messenger users on both the Android and iOS platforms will now be able to book an Uber ride via the dedicated icon in the BBM Discover menu.

More importantly, you'll be able to call your Uber without leaving the BBM application or having to install the dedicated Uber app on their smartphones. When the new Uber service is launched from the Discover menu, the service will ask users to sign in with their mobile number or connect with a social media account.

The service will then access their profiles and settings and load a map after automatically detecting their locations. You'll then be able to set your destination, tap the Request Uber button and a payment option.

As the title says, the new feature will soon be available to every BBM user in Africa, Asia, Europe, North America, and the Middle East.
