You could soon see a new feature on your Uber app.

The company is currently testing a new feature that adds an emergency button on the app.

It connects directly to 911 and shows your exact location so you can share it with the dispatcher.

The company says that feature should be running on every user’s phone while they are on a trip.

This new feature is a part of Uber’s efforts to fix its image after a series of sexual assaults.
