Uber yesterday provided a sneak peek of an exciting collaboration with Microsoft Outlook team for a new add-in for Outlook that was demoed during BUILD keynote.
When it comes to staying organized and connected across devices, Outlook is your best friend. With the Uber add-in for Outlook, you can set an Uber ride reminder for any calendar event with a single tap. When it’s time to leave for your next event, Uber will send you a notification. Swipe on the notification to jump to the Uber app with the destination already set, and simply confirm your request. Whether you have an upcoming dinner reservation, doctor’s appointment, or flight, Uber and Outlook will help get you there on time.
To celebrate Build 2015, Microsoft and Uber are giving every Build attendee two free rides*! Use these rides to get around San Francisco, see some sites, or visit one of the city’s best restaurants. Simply visit the prize booth on the first floor and ask for an Uber card.
