After all the drama surrounding Didi Chuxing’s buyout of Uber China, we have all been waiting to see how the once rivals are going to wrap up the past and head towards a joint future. More than three months after the acquisition, we now know that Uber will be officially exiting the Chinese market, both as a company and as a style of service, everything that makes Uber, well, Uber.

Instead of the usual promotions that greet users, Uber China’s welcome screen now features an announcement stating that this app will shutdown on November 27.

In line with this move, the company is actively promoting a new Chinese version of Uber China, co-developed by Didi. The new app, rolled out in late-October, was launched across the country on November 3rd after pilot tests in several cities. One thing to note is that it only works in China.
