Looks like the Cortana team is putting the final touches on their Uber integration. Starting today some users, including ourselves, noticed that under Cortana's Notebook > Connected Accounts an option for the call-up car service has appeared. The ability appears only to be for those using Insider releases of Windows 10 and not build 10240.

Unfortunately, once you begin the process of linking Cortana to Uber, it appears to fail. This issue is likely due to something on Uber's end as the coordinated effort goes forward.

Uber was one of the biggest tech buzz words of 2014, and the popular ad-hoc taxi service is growing exponentially in 2015. The Windows Phone app has not seen too much in the way of updates, although the core functionality is there for those who need to request a ride.

Today, version 3.1.7.3 is live in the Store, and it is aimed at the Indian market. Indian law requires two-factor authentication for transactions, which Uber was not using for credit cards. As a result, those in Inida had no way to make payments for the service. The new update to the Windows Phone app adds Paytm Wallet, which should give a big boost to the Valley startup.

UberPool is an idea that car service Uber says comes straight from its Uber Garage. In its essence, UberPool is carpooling with Uber, but you share your ride with strangers rather than finding friends to take the trek with you. Doing so will afford you the ability to split fares to take down the cost of your Uber ride further as well as enjoy someone else's company.
