Thank you, Lord! I thought I was the only one who would prefer to have a nice QUIET UBER RIDE RATHER than chatting it up with my Uber driver. I can't stand small-talk and so I usually just pop in my ear buds as soon as I get in the ride. Apparently, I'm not the only one and Uber now has some good news for us! Uber just launched its new "Quiet Mode" preference in the app, which allows riders to specify what level of conversation can be had during the Uber ride. YAAYYY!!!! In the "Quiet Mode" preference you can pick "Quiet Preferred," "Happy to Chat," or "No Preference," For me, NO TALKING and just put the radio on iHeart80s @ 103.7, please! For now the setting is offered for premium Uber rides, so you're in luck if you take Uber Black or Uber Black SUV trips. Other personalized features Uber is adding for Uber Black include temperature control and extended pickup times. I'm down for whatever it takes. Thank you!
