Under pressure from investors to start earning profits, Uber plans to combine its Uber Eats and riddle apps into a game that users loyal to one service will start using the other.
"We want Uber to be the operating system for your everyday life, says CEO Dara Khosrowshahi in a statement on the company's website." However, you want to move around your city, and whatever you need, we want Uber to be your go-to app. "

The next generation app, which is tested in hundreds of cities in the US and around the world, puts Rides, Eats and future services side by side and will be accompanied by a pressure to ensure every customer is treated as a VIP, Khosrowshahi said.
The San Francisco-based company's shares have fallen 30 percent since they went public in May, with a loss of 6 $ 2 million, which was largely a $ 4 billion product in stock-based compensation given to employees who had to report with the offer.
Whether Uber customers will be satisfied with the Company's new strategy remains to be seen.
"This is a big change for us, but we as a company have never been afraid of major changes," Khosrowshahi said.
