Uber Dial

For frequent travelers, having an Uber app on their phone is a must, especially in this rainy season – but what if you don’t have the app or for some reason, you don’t want to install it. Even if that is the case, Uber has now got you covered.

You can now easily and quickly book an Uber even without the app on your phone. You just need a mobile browser. In fact, the experience without the app looks much leaner and simpler. Here is how it works.

1.) Navigate to dial.uber.com on your mobile phone browser. You will need to enter your registered mobile number. Incase, you are a new user you will need to register with Uber before you can ask for a cab.

Once you enter you mobile phone number correctly, you will get a prompt to asking you to start the ride.

However, before you start riding you will need to give permission to Dial web app to receive information from Uber. Once you allow it, you are all set to book your Uber Cab.

The Uber Dial Web app does away with the familiar maps view – while some users may not like it, in our opinion, it makes the browser experience much more simpler and leaner. The user gets a screen which offers you information on how far (in minutes) is the nearest Uber car.

The good thing however, is that Uber Dial offers you the estimate of fare once you enter your destination. Now, because this does not have a GPS, Uber has found an alternative way for driver to let you know the location. They will instantly connect you with your driver over call to coordinate pickup.

Once the trip is complete, the user will need to pay the driver in cash.  No card, no wallets just simple cash.

Why Uber Dial is Good?

There are many reasons why Dial will appeal to many – First, it does not have much of a learning curve (It is even simpler than app) – very little chance that anything can go wrong. Secondly, it is light on your smartphone. If you have an under-powered and laggy smartphone, you will not have to worry about any app crashing or hanging. And, most importantly, you can talk to driver and give him directions to your location.

All in all, Uber Dial is a good alternative to their mobile app and yes, if you are wondering, you can book from your desktop and laptop as well!

    Excellent idea. I really like Uber but sometimes their app is quite annoying. Calling a taxi using the browser solves this problem

    “No card, no wallets just simple cash.” – WTF??? The idea (behind digital) is to get RID of cash, not to *encourage* it!!
