Some drivers will now have a digital icon drivers place on their dashboard so riders can easily locate them. Riders choose a color in-app and the Beacon changes to match.
HOW COME SOME CARS DON'T HAVE BEACONS?
The Beacon is currently going through a limited pilot with select partners, but we hope to expand the Beacon's availability in the coming weeks. You can learn more about Uber Beacon and where it's available by clicking the link below.
HOW CAN I CHANGE MY COLOR SELECTION?
The first time you are paired with a driver with an Uber Beacon, you'll see a notification at the bottom of the app saying "Tap to set a Beacon Color."
Tap on Uber logo in the lower right hand corner of the screen to go to the color selector. Drag the slider to choose a color to display in your driver's window. You can then either hold up your phone so your driver can identify you, or you can tap the "x" in the lower corner of the screen to return to the map display. You can change the color of the Uber Beacon any time by going back to the color selector.
