Ever put on your AirPods to keep a chatty Uber driver from annoying you during your trip? You may have an option to put them away.
Uber just launched a new preference in the app that allows you to specify what level of conversation you’d like to have during your Uber ride. Starting on Tuesday in the U.S., riders can choose between “Quiet preferred” and “happy to chat” in the app.
Or, if you don’t care one way or the other, you can just leave the setting at “No preference.” The driver will get a heads-up before you’re picked up, so they know what type of mood you’re in.
