Uber Black Launches Quiet Driver Mode
By www.techcrunch.com, 15 May. 2019

Tired of chatty drivers?  Uber is finally giving users its most requested feature: an in-app way to ask for minimal conversation during your ride.

 The “Quiet Mode” feature is free and will be available to everyone soon, but only on Uber Black and Uber Black SUV premium rides. 

Users can select “Quiet preferred”, “happy to chat” or leave the setting at “No preference”. The desire for silence might convince more riders to pay for Uber’s more expensive vehicle types so they can work, nap, take a call, or just relax in the car.
