After months of feedback, research, and interviews with their drivers, Uber launched a new and improved Uber Driver app.

We recently reviewed the new Uber Driver app and tested each of the features with the help of our members. Below are the results.

One of the main new features of the Driver app is the real-time earnings tracker. This allows you to keep an eye on your daily as well as your weekly income goals.

Another improvement is the new status bar, which provides real-time updates on surge pricing, while also providing insight into high-frequency areas. The new app includes an Opportunities nearby bar, with optional navigation to the recommended areas.

The updated driver profile section includes your messages and feedback from previous riders, with notifications now acting as an inbox so you can now check your old messages if you ever need to.

The changes to the driver profile mean you no longer have to visit a Greenlight Hub or the Ignition Centre to update your account information.

You can now add or remove documents with the touch of a button. Editing your bank account details will take effect within 24 hours, or by next pay cycle at the latest.

They introduced a night mode to make it easier to navigate at night. You can turn it on and off manually, or set it to change automatically at a given hour.
