Cruise, the self-driving car company, has unveiled its long-awaited Android app for ridehailing, expanding its service beyond iPhone users in San Francisco. The launch of the Android app is in response to strong demand, as approximately 20 percent of Cruise’s waitlist users are on the Android platform. The release of the Android app fulfills one of the most frequently requested updates on social media from potential customers.
The Android app will come equipped with all the features and upgrades that have been introduced to the iOS app since its initial launch. This includes the convenience of dropping a movable pin on the map by long-pressing the screen, allowing users to pinpoint their pickup and drop-off locations precisely.
