Uber Eats is testing a new feature in San Francisco called & # 39; Uber Moments & # 39; with which customers can reserve a culinary lesson or a table in their favorite restaurant

The experiment, first reported by Forbes, was launched on Friday and will only be available to those living in San Francisco – the birthplace of Uber.

Uber sent an email to users in Bay City stating that they could book Uber Moments for the following month, scheduled for November 17.

& # 39; Uber Moment & # 39; includes the option to book a $ 75 lesson on making Chinese dumplings and a $ 55 five-course Nigerian dinner.

& # 39; We are always thinking of new ways to improve the Eats experience, & # 39; a Uber spokesperson told Forbes when asked about the pilot.

It is not clear when or whether Uber Moments will roll out as a full service to the masses.

The experiment comes shortly after Uber has announced that it will shortly merge its food delivery and ride applications into & # 39; the operating system for everyday life & # 39 ;.

The shift follows shortly after the company's cash loss had surfaced because it had lost $ 5.2 billion in the three-month period that ended in June – the largest quarterly loss ever.

Uber is shot at because of her approach to safety and is plagued by concerns from regulatory authorities, which have cost billions of dollars.

Dara Khosrowshahi, however, insists that the company is on the right track and has even expressed confidence in its business model – which may have been his way of merging the new application.

Indicated by The edge, the company combines its apps for driving and delivering food, while at the same time adding new safety features that push alternative modes of transport – bicycles, scooters and public transportation.

& # 39; We don't just live in the digital sphere, and the real world has all kinds of complications, & # 39; Khosrowshahi said to The Verge.

& # 39; And for us the challenge is: how do we navigate through those complications and how do we ensure that we are a constructive part of everyone's life? & # 39;

And the merged app would have received a complete makeover.

Instead of seeing a map or a restaurant nearby when you first open the app, you'll see two boxes: & # 39; Take a ride & # 39; or & # 39; Order food & # 39 ;.

However, The Verge noted that not every customer gets the same screen, because the second version retains the map's search bar and destination.

There are two additional tabs at the bottom that drive & # 39; drive & # 39; and & # 39; food & # 39; so that users can choose whether they want to deliver food or a car.

With past horror stories of riders flooding the news in the wrong car, Uber has released a four-digit PIN verification system that riders must tell the ride aloud before they can start the ride.

However, the company is set to release technology that uses ultrasonic waves that know when the driver is in the car.

The & # 39; Real-Time ID Check & # 39 ;, released in 2016, has been updated to make drivers hear, blink and smile while looking into the camera of a smartphone.

Finally, riders are notified when they are dropped off at a bicycle line to prevent accidents.

The new safety features may result from Uber's relaxed approach to driver safety in the past.

CEO Dara Khosrowshahi (pictured at the event where the app merger was announced) insists that the company is on the right track and has even expressed confidence in its business model ┬┐that may have been a way to use the new application to merge.

All security issues reported to the Uber Special Investigation Team are in fact hidden because they are forbidden to share them with law enforcement officers or submit official police reports & # 39; even if they get confessions of crimes & # 39 ;, says The Washington Post.

They should also not advise victims or potential victims of crime to seek legal advice.

& # 39; We don't think trust can be gained by one thing, & # 39; Kansal said to The Verge. & # 39; I think the way we want to gain trust is by showing commitment, and that is going to be a long term. & # 39;
