New York, meet the world’s tech scene
5,000 Tech leaders are coming to NYC this November to learn and do business. This is your chance to join them.
In any chat, you can now use a /Uber command to request a ride. Because Slack doesn’t track your location, you’ll also have to tell Uber where you are and where you want to go.
Here’s how it works:
/uber ride [origin] to [destination] calls a car for you, and takes you from your specific location to a desired desitnation
/uber estimate [origin] to [destination] gives you an estimated price before you request a ride
/uber status tells you where your driver is
/uber share lets you share the progress of your ride, which is handy if your teammates are wondering if you’re okay
/uber cancel is a quick way to say “nah, forget it” to Uber
/uber help is there when you forget how to do any of the above
You will have to add the Uber function to your Slack room first, but if you request a lot of Uber rides, it’s easily one of the better add-ons you can have at your disposal.
