In addition to booking a movie ticket, you can also book a ride in BookMyShow. Uber India announced its API integration with BookMyShow that will allow you to book a ride in Uber when you book a movie show in the app.
Based on the timings of the show, you will get either “Ride Now” or set a reminder to book Uber later options. According to the Uber, the app in the Android will get the API integration on Monday.
Besides partnering with BookMyShow, the Uber has also joined hands with firms such as Housing.com, Happitto and Satyam Cinemas. There are also reports that the e-commerce giant Snapdeal is looking forward to integrate Uber and explore the taxi options. However, both Uber and Snapdeal have refused to comment on the news so far.
Saad Ahmed, Business Development Lead said to Ndtv’s Gadgets 360, “We made a conscious decision to launch our Trip Experiences API first in India, at one of our first hackathons in Asia. We’ve seen considerable interest from startups both big and small who are already using our API, we’re in conversation with a few larger players as well.”
