You know all those times you were out with friends and decided to carpool? You bust out your best Chinese to explain to the driver that you’ve got multiple stops only to be told to update this in the app, which you can't, because that feature is limited to the Chinese version. Or maybe you were running late and had to weigh up the risks of waiting in the queue for a cheap and cheerful Express vs. the expensive yet reliable Premier.
Wouldn’t it just be great if there were, say, a function where you could key in multiple, consecutive locations? Or an option where you could just select all types of cars to jump into the shortest queue?
Oh, wait, these features do exist. Just not in the English app. Until now! Tap that destination button and you'll now discover a + button, where before there was none, and you'll be able to add 3 stops. Boom!
Didi has also added its share bikes into the app — the mint green rejects you've seen knocking around but maybe haven't used. Like with Mobike — uh, ahem, "Meituan"
— and Alipay's Hello bikes, you need to fill in your details and upload a photo of your ID plus a mugshot of you holding said ID before you can use them.
Plus, bonus Didi tip you might've missed; you can now order a Didi
to the venue you're looking for in the SmSh WeChat straight from the app — no more copying and pasting addresses.
