Uber now lets you add multiple stops to your ride

Uber today is adding a new feature that will solve a challenge nearly every rider, at some point, has faced: the difficulty with picking up friends along the route to your destination.

You can now stop up to three times on Uber journeys.

Uber announced Thursday it's introducing the option to add multiple stops to your ride.

To use the tool, tap "Where to?" and then the "+" option. You can add or remove stops in real time, with your requests syncing with your driver's directions immediately, and you can still split the cost of the fare with friends via the app. But if the rider spends more than 3 minutes at the other stops, the price could change from the upfront fare they were quoted before requesting their ride.

This is the latest of a bunch of recent Uber updates that aim to improve customer and drivers' experiences.

You may have noticed a hullabaloo about this earlier in the year.

If you've ever tried to share an Uber with anyone not headed to the same address as you, you'll know how annoying it is to frantically change the drop-off destination after every stop.
