Google has made it easier to hail rides from more car services within Google Maps.

The new ride services mode now shows a map with a carousel of car providers that are nearby. Users can select their preferred service (Uber, Lyft) and see what options and promotions are available.

Moreover, Maps will let people book, complete, and pay for an Uber ride without ever leaving the Google Maps app thanks to new integration with Uber’s API. Uber users can sign into their account or create a new one within Google Maps and then book rides, track drivers, and connect via message — even if Uber is not installed on the device in question.

The app also allows people to examine menus, hours, and other details about destinations while en route. Google says the new ride tools will be available over the next few daysvia Google Maps for Android and iOS.
