Uber Technologies Inc is talking with Alphabet Inc's autonomous driving unit Waymo about using its technology on Uber's ride-hailing app, Uber Chief Executive Dara Khosrowshahi said on Wednesday, signalling a possible thaw in relations between the firms.
Khosrowshahi said on stage at the Code Conference that Uber's relationship with Waymo was "getting better" since Uber in February agreed to pay Waymo $245 million in shares to settle a legal dispute over trade secrets.
"We're having discussions with Waymo. If something happens, great. If not, we can live with that, too," Khosrowshahi said.
