Uber has announced the launch of its UberEATS app in the U.S. The standalone app allows users in supported cities to order food for delivery and track their orders on their device.
For now, the UberEATS app supports users in Chicago, Houston, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Toronto, with Atlanta, Austin, Melbourne, New York, Paris, Seattle and Washington D.C. coming soon.
The UberEATS app allows users to browse menus at supported restaurants, or search for food by cuisine. The app gives users estimates for how long items would take to arrive, but if they’re in a hurry, they can order food from the Instant Delivery menu, which can be delivered in 10 minutes or less.
While Uber’s food delivery service has previously been available within the main Uber app, in a blog post, Chetan Narain, UberEATS product manager, said the processes of requesting a ride and ordering food ‘each deserve their own home.’
