Uber's multi-destination feature makes riding with friends easier

You can add up to three stops in a single journey.

Uber has launched a multiple stop feature that lets riders add up to three stops on their trip, eliminating the need to add a new address after each drop or pick-up. Open the app, hit "Where to?" and then tap the "+" symbol to add the addresses of each stop. You can add or remove stops in real time, with your requests syncing with your driver's directions immediately, and you can still split the cost of the fare with friends via the app.

It's a useful feature for both parties, helping drivers minimise the time spent on each trip and giving riders more transparency on their fares. The function is already in use in some major cities worldwide, but will roll out more widely in the coming week. Londoners still have the chance to make the most of it, but for how long remains to be seen.

Correction: This article has been updated to reflect the fact that Uber continues to operate in London while in talks with TfL.
