Hey Uber Dude, Just Shut Up And Drive

If you use Uber a lot, but hate making small talk with drivers and would rather listen to your music or just play on your phone, they may have come up with an answer.

On Tuesday, Uber 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. 

In the "Quiet Mode" preference you can pick "Quiet Preferred," "Happy to Chat," or "No Preference."

There is, of course, a catch. For now, the setting is only offered for premium Uber rides, so if you take Uber Black or Uber Black SUV, you can select your preferred level of conversation.

If you use Uber Black, Uber is also adding personalized features such as temperature control and extended pickup times.

What do you think, Uber users?
