Google just announced that its navigation app Google Maps will be adding a new car services tab as a complement to its walking, driving and public transportation directions. It will show fares and riding options from a number of providers in addition to Uber.
New partners include 99Taxis in Brazil, Ola Cabs in India, Hailo in the U.K. and Spain, mytaxi in Germany and Spain and Gett in the U.K. They will sit alongside listings from Uber.
Google says the new integrations will be rolling out first on Android, and “coming very soon” to iOS.
These services will be shown on a dedicated “taxi” tab in the app.
