Has anyone used Uber's Family Profiles? Sounds like my children can take Ubers now?

Looks like a pretty cool feature to let my kids start using Uber on my same account.  Does anyone have experience with this?   I believe it is intended for letting kids take Uber.  Sounds super convenient.  are there any gotchas.

    They still need to download the app and create an account? Seriously, what the heck is the point of this then?

      As the guru puts it, I think it's purely for sharing a payment method.  Basically for famly members who don't have their own credit cards.  

      I too was excited when I saw this first.  I thought this would let me dispatch a car easier to my elderly parents, but nope.

    This doesnt even make sense, you can use the same credit card on multiple accounts anyways...

    Did anyone click on that link?  They even have a child on th picture.  They totally make it sound like it's for kids.

      In fact, it does.  

      They sneak this in there: "Whether you have a child in college or a parent who doesn’t drive, it’s never been easier to help them get around. Family Profiles allows you to share one payment method so you can foot the bill without the hassle."
