Uber is releasing its Progressive Web App for Windows 10 devices today. The company used to build a native Universal Windows Platform app for Windows 10 devices before, but the company stopped development of the app after it stopped functioning.
The new Uber PWA, like every other Progressive Web App, is available from the Microsoft Store. The app functions just like you would expect — you can book a ride, view your previous ride, redeem gift codes and coupons, change settings, etc. It’s a very simple app that gets the job done without much trouble.
Plus, since this is a PWA, Uber can regularly update the app on the server-side without needing users to actually update the app. Uber’s new PWA can also be accessed from m.uber.com, if you prefer using a browser. While it is nice to see Uber continuing to “invest” on an app for Windows devices, the app could do with some design changes for Windows 10 PCs to better work on the big screen as it feels like a horribly stretched version of a mobile app at this moment. Either way, you can get it here.
Thanks for the tip, Halil!
