Use Google Search to book Ola, Uber cabs
Google has made it easier for Indian users by enabling them to book Ola and Uber cabs directly from Google Search through their smart phones.
 
By using this option, users can find directions and to book a cab, they need to choose from a menu of ride service options straight from Google Search app or through the mobile search browser.
 
After doing this, users will get to see a tab for ride services that will tell them fare estimates and pick up timings on the screen.
 
In cases where the app is not installed on the device, Google Search will show a link to install the app.
