For those of you cunning enough not to have updated Uber in China, the stay of execution is nearly over.
On Sunday, the ride-sharing service sent a message to all users in China notifying them that the old version of the app won't be available after seven days and encouraging them to download the new Chinese-only version if they wish to continue using the service.
Key changes include a Chinese-only interface (even if your phone is set to another language), Chinese-only payment methods (Union Pay, Alipay and Baidu Wallet), just two car options (People's Uber and Uber Black) and a base fee of RMB13 — the same as Didi's.
Uber China has said that features such as an English interface and the ability to accept international cards may be "added in future updates."
