Shhh! Uber offers new 'quiet mode' option for some riders who don't want to talk with drivers

Uber is now offering a 'quiet mode' feature for some riders who prefer to not have a conversation with their drivers.

The feature was added to the company's premium, or 'Uber Black' service as a part of a list of preferences you can choose before entering the car.

Premium riders can pick anything from the amount of conversation, to the temperature of the car. The new preferences also include a request for help loading luggage.

There is no word on whether the 'quiet mode' will extend to Uber's standard riders.
