Uber has added a new destination: people

Let’s say you just flew into Phoenix and you want to meet a friend there for drinks before heading to your hotel.  It used to be that you’d ask them, “Where are you? … Where’s that again?” then try to quickly type in the address before you forgot any of the details, hoping you didn’t misspell anything.  With Uber’s new “People” feature, instead of typing in your destination, you simply enter the person’s name, skipping all the back and forth. Uber then locks in their destination and directs the driver to take you there.  It also sends your ETA to the person you’re going to see.  Just sync your contacts with Uber before your next trip, and enjoy the ride.
