Stand out from the crowd
Spotlight helps your driver find you in crowded areas or late at night. Just tap the Spotlight button in the Uber app to light up your phone, and hold it towards your driver as he or she is arriving.
Why it’s helpful
Find each other faster
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.
