Have you ever found yourself exhausted after each day of labor and suddenly so hungry you can’t work out the trouble to cook a meal…or even type during a full search term? If so, Uber Eats’ latest update is formed for you. In the future, users can now look for the food item they need by entering an emoji into the search field rather than words.
The Uber Eats app now chooses to type in an emoji, then see the restaurants and merchants nearby who offer that item — and yes, the map presents these options using an equivalent emoji. Jokes aside, the choice is beneficial for those struggling with spelling who are still learning to talk their local language or traveling internationally.
The example Uber provided for this new feature is that the burger emoji — it doesn’t matter what language you speak, a picture of a burger conveniently conveys the thought of a burger. The map shows where the user can find nearby food options, including which destinations are closest to their current location.
If you’re not within the mood for a burger, you’ll instead use the pizza emoji, sushi emoji, or even the frozen dessert cone emoji if you’re within the mood for a treat. The pickup map includes cards with more detailed information about the restaurants presented on the map, including their ratings from other users.
This new addition aside, the Uber Eats app remains an equivalent as always — you’ll still use ordinary word-based searches, of course, if you’re not feeling savvy enough to use your favorite emoji. The app are often wont to order food and other goods like alcohol for delivery or pickup.
