Soon You May Be Able To Hail An Uber From Any App

Developers will also earn money for every new rider who uses the "Ride Request" button.

Online taxi-hailing service Uber said it would allow third-party app developers to add a "Ride Request" button within their apps for free.

Developers would need to register their apps on Uber's website to get access to the code to add the button, which users can tap to request a ride.

Earlier this year, Uber had partnered with Zomato, an India-based restaurant finder, to add a "Ride there with Uber" button on the restaurant page.

Last year, Google Maps also integrated Uber within its app to allow users to book a ride.
