Uber Introduces A 'Quiet Mode' To Silence Chatty Drivers

US-IT-lifestyle-transport-labor-Uber

Unfortunately, the new "quiet preferred" or "happy to chat" options are only available for Uber Black or Uber Black SUV premium riders.

The new option is only available when booking their premium ride-sharing service. Drivers can choose if they want the vehicle to be hot or cold and if they are willing to speak to the driver or prefer to have silence instead. The "Quiet Mode" feature is free and will be available to everyone in the United States tomorrow, but only on Uber Black and Uber Black SUV premium rides. Uber Black riders will get premium phone support like members of Uber Rewards' highest Diamond tier.

Uber announced Wednesday that users of its premium service will now be able to push a button to keep their driver quiet. Meanwhile, Uber riders will demand that this feature be included in all other Uber services.

Uber Black is a luxury auto service that is yet to reach the shores of India.

Quiet Mode is not the only new feature in the app.

Selena Gomez: Social Media Is Terrible
Likewise, Kim Kardashian-West who has made her name as being a social media influencer also limits her social media usage. Gomez occasionally takes social media "breaks".

Given the long time they spend driving you and others around all day, though, it might not be a bad thing to be open to chat once in a while. Asking them to be quiet seems too rude - they're lovely, after all - but what do you do? Although you'll start to be charged for that.

Having pushed taxi drivers to breaking point around the world, Uber is revamping its effort to take on limousine services.

"Whether it's heading to that important meeting, or arriving in style for date night, we're offering an increasing number of ways for riders to personalize their experiences", the blog said. "The driver is an independent contractor".

The company told TechCrunch that during the past three months they have done extensive research on driver perceptions, after which they came up with this new feature.
