"With Uber Wallet, earners and spenders will now be able to easily track their earning and spending history, manage and move their money, and discover new Uber financial products all in one place. The Uber Wallet will start rolling out in the Uber Driver app in the coming weeks, and will soon start rolling out in the Uber and Uber Eats apps as well," Uber Money head Peter Hazlehurst wrote in a post last year.

The latest announcement comes shortly after Uber revealed it had handled over 50% of cab rides in India. The ride-hailing major claimed it had been the dominant platform in all the markets it operates. Uber said it facilitated 14 million rides in a week last year, up from 11 million rides a week.
