In its latest update, black car and taxi service Uber has made it dead simple for customers sharing a ride together to split up the fare evenly through their apps. Building on a previous update that brought the Google Wallet payment system to the service making it that much easier to pay your fare, the latest update makes it just as simple to split a ride between each person in the car. Now, once you've requested a ride, simply hit the "Fare Split" button next to your driver's name, and then invite friends that are riding with you to join in on the payment.
Other riders can be added through your contacts list or by their phone number, and when they confirm the math will all be handled by Uber at the end of the ride. Furthering the simplicity of paying for rides with the app, Uber will evenly split the fare between the confirmed riders and bill them individually. Grab a download of the latest version of the Uber app at the Play Store link above.
