There's a new Uber feature being introduced that riders are definitely going to appreciate! Uber announced several new features for Uber Black and Uber Black SUV riders Wednesday, including "Quiet Mode".

The Black range offers riders to choose to ride in style with a high end of vehicles which cost more than those part of the X pool of vehicles. According to the company, Uber passengers now have the ability to request a quiet ride, which is to say that they won't have to answer probing questions from overly friendly or inquisitive drivers.

Uber Black is a luxury auto service that is yet to reach the shores of India.

Uber Black and Uber Black SUV are the organization's premium auto services that place riders in high-end vehicles.

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.

Quiet Mode is not the only new feature in the app.

"Premium Support" has also been added to the Uber experience to allow passengers access to "phone support with live agents" in the event that they need immediate assistance.

Rival Lyft previous year revealed plans for a similar feature, dubbed "zen mode", but has yet to release the function.

Here's the deal though, the feature is only available to Uber Black and Uber Black SUV rides and is now only offered in the United States.

Given the long time they spend driving you and others around all day, though, it might not be a bad thing to be open to chat once in a while. In many cases, riders may feel rude or frightened to reject conversation and ask out loud for quiet. "The driver can have that information and do with it what they want".

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".
