Uber introduces ‘Quiet Mode’ feature for riders who need silent trip

Car-hailing platform, Uber is introducing a new feature where riders can select a “Quiet Mode” option when requesting for rides.

The new feature being introduced Uber mobile app suits riders who would rather have a silent trip.

The feature is coming several months after app users repeatedly asked to be provided with a feature that allows them to opt out of having to talk to — or get chatty with — the drivers.

“If you need to respond to emails or are in the mood for a nap, make your trip a quieter one with just one tap. If you’re in the mood to chat, that’s an option too,” Uber revealed on its website.

“Uber Black and Uber Black SUV riders told us they wanted high-quality service and premium comfort. That’s why we’ve improved features and requirements to meet or exceed their expectations on every ride.”

Additionally, the ride service is also launching a ‘Help with Luggage’ feature to “let your driver know that an extra pair of hands is needed for your luggage.” Riders can also communicate their optimal temperature before entering a vehicle.

Although the feature is not available on Uber X and pool rides, riders will have to select an Uber Black or Uber Black SUV premium ride in order to test the new feature.

Noting that the introduced premium feature preferences and more would be available to all US Uber Black and Uber Black SUV riders as from May 15, the ride service revealed that there are plans to “expand these…to more cities soon”.

In April, Uber Nigeria had launched a new feature on its app that enables its customers in the country to tip its drivers after a satisfying trip.
