Add some color to your pickup. This feature transforms your phone screen into a glowing spotlight that guides your driver to you.

Why it's helpful

Spotlight makes it easier for you and your driver to find each other, even in tricky situations. Your phone screen will light up with a preselected color, you will hold your phone up, and your driver will be notified of what color to look for—making your pickup even easier.
