GrabChat is our new instant messaging platform within Grab. It’s a seamless form of in-app communication between you and your driver.
Drivers can send templated messages to passengers with just one tap, and let you know that “I’m 2 minutes away!” We’ve also provided some handy templates for you, with messages like: “Are you nearby?” to help gauge your estimated pick-up time. Or, you can use GrabChat to send your driver tips on how to identify you quickly. This way, you’ll be en route to your destination in no time.
Finally, as a bonus, all of our in-app communication is free — so say goodbye to all those pesky SMS charges, or being charged for calling a foreign number!
Now, isn’t that convenient?
