Uber is the first partner to sign up to Transportation on Messenger, where you can order a ride within the Messenger app. From there, you'll receive your receipts and status updates as conversations, with Uber testing it out right now in specific parts of the US, but other areas and countries will be included very soon. Both Facebook and Uber will benefit from this, as Facebook gets more users - and as Engadget reports, "and importantly, their payment info - returning to Messenger.

Uber on the other hand, gets its ride-sharing hands into the massive Messenger platform, which has over 1 billion users.
