Your ratings will start to show up there after you had finished a multiple rides in your account.
Book for someone else:
Another feature that many few people use in the Uber’s Android app is that you can actually book a ride for your family or friends. Although technically anyone can book a ride for someone else, but the company has launched this feature recently which allows the users to book a ride for their dear ones whether they have their contact in their phone or not. To do this, first you have to give app the permission to access your contact list. You can do this by going to Settings>Apps>Permissions. After setting this up, open the app and fill the destination box where to, and then enter the pick up location after which the app will show you some results, pick Someone else option. Then in the who will be riding option, just select the contact of the person for whom you would like to book the ride for. And as fr as the payment is concerned that person who is taking the ride can pay in the cash mode.
Edit your pickup location:
Sometimes, you may want to change the pickup location after the ride booking has been confirmed, but as many people don’t know how to edit the pick up location, they tend to cancel the ride and book another one with the new location, but this will lead to your poor ratings in the app and it is not the right solution, there is actually a way where you can edit the pickup location of an already confirmed ride. You can see the option edit just beside your pickup location after your ride has been booked and confirmed, just tap on and you will see the map and pin there just drag and drop that pin to edit your location. After you are done just tap on Confirm.
Enter multiple destinations:
You can actually change the destination of the ride after starting the ride, sometimes this might be the most needed feature, you can make use of this feature if you ever want to pick someone or drop someone. All you need to do is just enter the destination where you might need to pick up or drop your friend. And as soon as you reach the location, just change it and enter your destination where you would like to drop by and confirm it.
