Uber offering ‘Quiet Mode’ so you can avoid small talk

Uber generic new

SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) — Prefer to keep to yourself, listen to some music and zone out during an Uber ride? Well, Uber has some good news for you, but of course, there’s a catch! 

Uber launched its new “Quiet Mode” preference in the app Tuesday, which allows riders to specify what level of conversation can be had during the Uber ride. 

In the “Quiet Mode” preference, you can pick: “Quiet Preferred,” “Happy to Chat,” or “No Preference,” TechCrunch reported.

For now, the setting is only offered for premium Uber rides. So you’re in luck if you take Uber Black or Uber Black SUV trips. 

Uber is adding more personalized features to Uber Black rides, too — including temperature control and extended pickup times.

Who’d like to see this roll out across all of Uber’s ride offerings?
