Hope you are enjoying discounted Uber ride in Chennai and kolkata. Uber lets you share your trip details to your family and friends, uber let you send SOS in case of emergency, uber let you split-fare with your co-riders. Its all already available.
Uber is highly motivated to monetize its trip duration via some mean, currently uber is allowing third party apps to show notification , accomplish some basic tasks, or show some ads based upon location/destination.

Soon, Uber may also provide dedicated service to improve trip experience to set itself stand apart from its competitor like OLA in India or lyft in USA cities.

Uber released new update to its developer API to improve 'Uber trip experience', by allowing you to give access about your trip details to third party apps which may notify you some usefull information while you are in trip.

Some examples given by Uber API is as follows ..
  • Entertainment - 10 minutes of music or video for a 10 minute trip
  • News - Get a 5 minute news briefing for a 5 minute trip
  • Gamification - Earn points/rewards for moving around your city
  • Local Guides - Insights for, and offers around, your destination
  • Special Content - Unlock special filters, emojis or other virtual goods while you’re in an Uber
  • Smart Thermostat - Turn on the heat when you’re approaching home
  • Smart Lights - Turn off the lights when you leave home

Uber trip information for developer, this means that, for every trip a given user takes with Uber, developer will see and use in app to improve experience ..
  • That a user may have free time (they are on a trip with Uber)
  • The state of their trip (arriving/in progress)
  • How much time they have (estimated time to pickup and destination)
  • Where the Uber is at the moment (current location)
  • Where they’re coming from (pickup location)
  • Where they’re going (destination location)
Users will be in complete control.
Uber says it's aware that with great power comes great responsibility, which is why the company claims that users will be in complete control. "They will need to give permission before their favorite apps can connect to Uber and access their trip details," the company says. "And users will be able to turn off the feature app by app at any point if it's not useful."

Uber earlier tried with Uber magazine in some US cities as experiment, there is no new news about it so Uber may thinks that going digital via Uber app API is better then going via printing named 'ARRIVING NOW'.

How to Re-authorize or unlink paytm with Uber India App

Having and active Uber and Paytm account is good, but if something goes wrong from either Uber or paytm side, you the customer suffers a lot. You can't book your ride back home, you can't book ride to airport, railway station. It becomes annoying to have such messy technical app. We cannot predict what may happen in future but we may be ready with some preparation.

Uber does all account sweep for security measures from time to time, if it finds any suspicion, it blocks account, put hold on booking a ride, asks for re-verification of ID or payment method. Recently Paytm was hacked and some hacker were able to make payment in paytm from some other account, hance Uber took security measure and put hold on some accounts.

The above image shows Merchants Authorized by you (Screenshot updated), where you can see Uber if you have already added paytm with uber.

How can you regain access of your Uber account once it's disabled?

Update: Banned account is a pain, I have many friends who got locked out form Uber due to suspicious activity, some got their account enabled again after some conversation with Uber support and mostly are banned for life. Here is one scenario when you account may get banned. Read this story till end to get the idea.

Q. How can you regain access of your Uber account once it's disabled?

Recently uber had this scheme of "refer someone, that refferal gets 600 credits and you get 600 when he makes his/her first ride".

I made many people join , though all refferals were real and accounts were created with their permission and presence but all accounts were created from my phone .

I earned many credits. But soon my account was closed down.
Now whenever I try logging in from any acount in my phone  it gets banned within few minutes.

Is there any solution or any hack to avoid this and get my acount back ? I still have 5k credits left in my account and I desperately want it.
