Uber is ready for a merger – from his apps that is.

The California company has announced that it will merge its food delivery and ride applications into & # 39; the daily life operating system & # 39 ;.

The shift follows shortly after the company's cash loss came to the surface, as it had lost $ 5.2 billion in the three-month period ending 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.

WHAT'S NEW?

Users can order food or order a car via the same app.

A pin code is now given to drivers who have to say it out loud in the car to start the ride.

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.

& # 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 say aloud to the ride before they can start the ride.

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

CEO Dara Khosrowshahi (pictured at the event where the app merger announcement was made) 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 introduce 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, & quot; The Washington said 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;
