Snapdeal users will now be able to hail taxis directly through the Snapdeal app as the online e-commerce marketplace has launched an in-app integration with Uber.

The company claims it is first e-talier to provide services to its customers that go beyond the traditional offerings of an e-commerce company.

"We are committed to building the country's most reliable and frictionless digital ecosystem, that caters to the entire range of India's consumption needs. Our unique partnership with Uber, a global leader in smart mobility, is an important step in that direction. We are confident that this integration will further provide an exemplary experience to our customers," said Tony Navin, Senior Vice President, Partnerships and Strategic Initiatives, Snapdeal.

Snapdeal recently came up with a slew of new features offering a range of services from flight bookings, ordering food to paying bills directly through its online platform.

"This partnership with Snapdeal is the first completely native Uber API integration in India and we are excited about this, as we share the same sentiment of building an ecosystem where we work together with other technology companies in order to give customers a hassle-free, end-to-end experience," said Mahesh Bhalla, Head of Business, Uber India

Last week, Snapdeal has announced partnership with BookMyShow to enable its customers book movie tickets online on Snapdeal. The online retailer also provides services such as hotel reservations.
