Say goodbye to choosy drivers
One annoying thing with ride-sharing platform Grab will soon be a thing of the past, as the company is reportedly testing a new “auto-accept” feature that automatically accepts bookings regardless of where the passenger is going.
It’s no secret that choosy drivers have long been a headache for Grab riders, which should be a thing of the past if the new feature is rolled out in the platform. Brain Cu, the country head for the ride-hailing platform, earlier said that the feature is currently being tested with 5,000 drivers before they decide whether or not to deploy it completely.
“Even when they see the destination, the job is automatically allocated to them, which they have to automatically go to,” he added.
“As with a system of this scale, we can’t roll it out immediately to everyone. So we’re doing a soft launch. We’re testing it across 5,000 drivers in the platform,” he added.
The feature is currently live in Indonesia.
