Uber recently launched a new “quiet mode” for Uber Black and Uber Black SUV.
Lots of passengers would prefer to skip the small talk in their rideshare, and now they have an option.
But it’s just there for the fancy rides. I am a little surprised it wasn’t rolled out for all.
The reactions on social media have been mixed. Some drivers are offended that passengers wouldn’t want to chat, and some passengers think it’s unnecessary.
But the nice thing is that passengers not wishing to use it don’t have to activate the option.
On the other hand, many women have applauded the change as a way to avoid aggressive flirting from some drivers.
