Uber Launches "Quiet Mode" For When You Don't Want To Talk To Your Driver

No more awkward small talk!

The app will soon allow passengers to “mute” their Uber driver with the press of a button.

Uber released a statement, saying, “Over the years, Uber has expanded mobility by delivering new modes of transportation whenever riders need it. Today, we’re rolling out a new, enhanced set of features for Uber Black and Uber Black SUV, the original luxury experiences where it all started. 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.”

These features will only be available within the United States to start.

And who knows... maybe Uber will have the new feature for regular ubers too!
