The deluge of new Facebook features in the past few months - most recently live photo and collage - have made it quite obvious that Facebook does not want you to use any other apps.
GLOYDIUS.TUMBLR.COM/GIPHYThe social media company's latest partnership with Uber was announced earlier this week, marking Facebook's first foray into transportation services. The two companies are now making it possible for you to hail an Uber car directly from the messaging app. Facebook is currently rolling out the feature in the U.S., and will later expand globally.

It's pretty easy to use, reports Adweek: If you have an Uber account, you just log in with Facebook and your credit card info will already be there. You won't miss anything about the Uber app: You can still track your driver, receive his updates and see your ride receipts.

This isn't the first time that Facebook Messenger has partnered with brands for marketing: It has also tested out ways to conduct customer service and pay your friends in the past.

One less app taking up space on our home screens? We'll take it!
