A screenshot from the Uber app which went viral on the internet showed an option of a Walking Buddy along with Uber Pool and Uber X. The image which was shared by a Twitter user left the netizens in splits.
For a drop-off at the LaGuardia Airport in New York, the app was offering an option of a 'Walking buddy'.
The image also showed an icon of two people holding hands next to the option. However, what made the Twitterati laugh hard was the charge for the option which was nearly USD 7.50 which comes to Rs 533.

As long as he doesn’t develop a crush on you it’s all good, he’s pretty good at protecting, besides the unnecessary killings :)— Never Satisfied (@dontnowhy3) January 14, 2020
Walking Buddies were brought in for people who wanted companionship and struggle to make friends, or those who would like to be more active but might feel silly walking alone, or for if you don't feel safe walking alone.— weiner soldier (@Aimdiddles) January 14, 2020
What was even more hilarious was when the app also joined in on the fun and replied to the tweet. Uber replied saying, "Gotta get those steps in."
