Popular ride sharing app Kakao Taxi (KakaoT) has undergone an update, making the app more accessible for a wider range of users- including English speaking users.
When you update the app, you’ll notice a range of new and improved functions. Notably, the app now has an English language feature. As well as introducing an English language feature, the App has included a ‘Driver’, ‘Navi’ and ‘Parking’ feature for Kakao registered users.
Hailing a taxi with Kakao Taxi is simple: the app automatically detects your pick up location or you can enter it manually, input your destination, your type of desired vehicle and lastly, your method of payment.
One big difference with the app update is the new restriction on payment method. Similar to American ride sharing app Uber, Kakao Taxi now takes payment solely via credit card details input into the app. Note: Kakao Taxi only accepts major Korean credit cards.
