You Can Now Request a Quiet Ride With Uber Black

However, in order to test the new feature, riders will have to select an Uber Black or Uber Black SUV premium ride.

Quiet mode is one of the new preferences available beginning Tuesday evening across the USA for premium Uber rides, which means only Uber Black or Uber Black SUV rides. 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".

For one, passengers will be able to pick a "happy to chat" option through the app if they're up for chit-chat, or a "quiet preferred" option if speaking to another human being is the last thing they need right now.

The new preference is rolling out with a slate of other new "rider preferences" that Uber riders can select before they hail an Uber Black or Uber Black SUV.

Uber is offering passengers who use their premium ride-sharing service the option to choose whether or not they want to have a conversation with the driver. The new feature is reportedly the first upgrade for Uber's upmarket services in several years. Riders can also set their preferred temperature and request help with luggage. One of them is a 15-minute grace period once the vehicle arrives to get in the auto, though a per-minute waiting fee will apply after 5 minutes.

Uber's new features will make your rides a bit smoother (and quieter).

More region and rollout specifications of the feature remain unclear as of now. Uber Black costs 100 percent more than Uber X and 200 percent more than the Uber Pool, according to The Verge. "That's why we've improved features and requirements to meet or exceed their expectations on every ride", the press statement explains.

The giant ride-hailing company has not yet made a profit, despite its multibillion-dollar valuation.
