Gett, the company behind the taxi-booking app of the same name in the US, announced today that its Android app is now compatible with Android Wear devices.
From today, users in the UK, Russia, Israel and the US can book a car on demand using voice commands. As an extra bonus you’ll also get driver notifications when your driver is on the way, and when they arrive. It’s worth pointing out that in some markets, the company operates as GetTaxi, rather than simply Gett.
You can also set a destination, pay and rate your driver directly from your wrist too with swipe gestures.
It probably won’t be a compelling enough reason on its own to make you buy an Android Wear smartwatch, or to start taking taxis everywhere around town, but if you’re a frequent user of Gett’s service, it makes things just a touch easier.
