You Can Now Request a Quiet Ride With Uber Black

Uber Adds a'Quiet Mode to Its Black Luxury Service

Uber announced Wednesday that users of its premium service will now be able to push a button to keep their driver quiet.

If you take a ride in an Uber Black or Uber Black SUV ride, you can select either the "Quiet preferred" or "Happy to chat" options when requesting a auto. This is the first time the option has been available on the Uber app.

The Therapy Ride could be exactly what some people need: when you just want to vent to someone and all they reply with is "that must be hard", "wow that's difficult" or 'life just isn't fair is it.' Now that is a service that we all need to have.

Uber also announced features for Uber Black users including being able to request more time getting to the vehicle, help with luggage and even preferred temperatures.

However, users will have to pay a little extra to take advantage of it, as the tool, called 'Quiet Mode, ' is only available for Uber Black and Uber Black SUV premium rides.

Extended Pickup Period: riders will have a little extra time to get to the auto when unexpected delays pop up.

What Uber's Ghajar did reveal was that "the reaction of Uber black drivers was overwhelmingly positive because they want to deliver a great experience to their rider...but they don't necessarily know what the rider wants".

Uber Black and Uber Black SUV customers can tap into even more enhanced features, including an extra pair of hands to manage luggage, predetermined temperature controls, and an extended pickup period of up to 15 minutes at no extra cost. "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". To avoid this social awkwardness, Uber has introduced Quiet Mode. However, users must set their preferences before hailing the cab and not once in the vehicle. You can disable the feature if you feel like having a casual conversation with your driver.

There's also a Bags option that informs the driver they have luggage with them to allow the driver to pull over somewhere they can easily load them into the trunk.

The giant ride-hailing company has not yet made a profit, despite its multibillion-dollar valuation. As part of Uber Black's latest makeover, Uber will be implementing new vehicle requirements.
