Uber wants to make it easier for users to ride in silence.
The ride-hailing giant is launching a new in-app feature that lets users request minimal conversation from the driver while they're on their way to a destination.
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.

In order to use Quiet Mode, users have to select an Uber Black or Uber Black SUV.
After they enter their destination, there will be an option for 'Ride Preferences' on the screen.
Once 'Ride Preferences' it selected, it will initiate a pop-up on screen.
Under 'Conversation,' select 'Quiet preferred,' instead of the default option, which is 'No preference.'
Then, hit 'Request Uber Black,' and your driver will know what your preferences are ahead of time.
Starting today, users can choose from 'Quiet Preferred,' 'Happy to Chat' or 'No preference' under the 'Conversation' heading in the app.
Now, users can take a nap, answer emails or listen to music without interruption from their driver.
'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,' the company said.
'If you’re in the mood to chat, that’s an option too.'
The features are rolling out as part of Uber's new list of 'ride preferences,' which are expanded controls that are only available during premium rides.
