Google has reportedly killed the ability of direct Uber ride booking from inside Google Maps without giving any reason.

The feature allowing users to book Uber rides through Google Maps was added in January last year, with which users could enter a location, identify their route, check Uber prices and request a ride without leaving the Maps app.

On one Google Maps Help page, Google simply says “you can no longer book Uber rides directly in Google Maps”, Android Police reported late on Monday.

Google is set to release a new system update called the “H Update” to its “Wear Operating System (OS)” with features like the battery saver, body efficiency and smart app resume.

“In the next few months, you should soon see a system update on your device labeled ‘System Version: H’,” a Community Manager at Wear OS, Google wrote in a blog-post on Thursday.

The new battery saver mode that would come with the “H Update” to Android-based smart-watches would extend the device battery further by turning on “Battery Saver” to only display the time once your battery falls below 10 per cent.

“Additionally, after 30 minutes of inactivity your watch will go into deep sleep mode to conserve battery,” the post added.

Wih the “Smart App Resume” users would be able to pick up where they left off across all apps on their watches.

The search-engine giant is also included a 2-step power off functionality that would enable users to turn off their watches by holding the power button until they see the power off screen and then choose to either “power off” or “restart.”
