Uber adds 'quiet mode' in luxury service upgrade

Uber offers ‘Quiet Mode’ for riders who don't want to talk to their drivers

Uber has a solution for chatty drivers

The company believes the new option will attract more passengers to its premium vehicle services, providing the customers with the opportunity of having a nap or making a call, to work or simply relax during the journey. It can be requested for any Uber Black or Uber Black SUV and is advertised as ideal for those who "need to respond to emails or are in the mood for a nap".

Riders have been clamoring for a "quiet mode" for when you don't want to chat.

Apart from Quiet Mode, the ride-sharing giant offers a so-called "Bag" option, allowing clients to signal if they need a driver to help them with their luggage. Apparently, many customers have requested top-notch service and premium comfort when using these experiences, and Uber has chose to finally deliver.

Time to time, we have seen a lot of e-taxi riders complain about chatty drivers, which makes this feature necessary considering some people are not comfortable talking to strangers.

The driver will have to wait up to 15 minutes for the rider, instead of the usual 1-5 minutes. Uber Black costs 100 percent more than Uber X and 200 percent more than the Uber Pool, according to The Verge.

"But really, why do we not have Lyft/Uber quiet mode yet. That's why we've improved features and requirements to meet or exceed their expectations on every ride", the news release states.

"With these new features and more to come, we're excited to ensure that our riders can arrive relaxed and refreshed, wherever they're headed", Ghajar said.

Uber's new feature should make it easier for users to have a quiet ride when it might otherwise be awkward to make that request to the driver's face. Some drivers may give riders a lower score if they aren't polite or don't talk enough.

As part of its new campus safety initiative, Uber is rolling out dedicated pickup zones on college campuses.
