Uber channels the Force with Star Wars: Rogue One tie-up

Promo is for limited time so get your Star Wars drive on now

It's the season for Star Wars promos and Uber is also getting in on the act.

From 12 December to 18 December, Uber and Disney are collaborating to transform your Uber app interface.

Hello, X-Wings


What happens is that you'll have to scroll over to where Uber's messages are, at the bottom of the screen. Swipe up and you'll see the Rogue One promo message - you'll have to click to Activate, as it's not automatic.

Once you activate, summoning rides will unlock exclusive video content for the first two rides. Besides the video, you will also see the cars on the Uber app displayed as iconic Star Wars ships.

It's certainly cute and entirely optional so if you're not a Star Wars fan, you can just skip out on promo by choosing not to activate it.

Star Wars fans who are craving more Rogue One content will probably enjoy this -no need for an update or further downloads, just fire up the Uber app and it's done. We've tried it and it activates pretty quickly and is, as promised, pretty amusing.

As Rogue One opens 15 December in this part of the world, you could even Uber over to the cinema and pretend you're being taken there in an X-Wing. Happy Uber-ing and oh, don't forget to check out our Uber tips.
