Wildly popular ridesharing company Uber recently re-launched its Uber Black and Uber Black SUV service with a new feature that can help make the ride more peaceful for riders.
After a recent complaint from Martha Stewart regarding the car’s cleanliness, Uber joined forces with the domestic celebrity to re-launch its service with a new social media strategy, featuring Stewart in their videos, as well as new features for the high-end vehicles.
Riders who book either an Uber Black or an Uber Black SUV vehicle via the ridesharing company’s mobile app can select either “happy to chat,” “quiet preferred” or “no preference” as part of a new Conversation menu. These options will communicate to the driver whether you are up for casual conversation during your journey or whether you’d prefer to stay quiet in an effort to sidestep potentially awkward small talk.
Other new features include selecting the temperature for the car’s interior (warm, cold, cool or no preference) and informing your driver of any luggage you may need assistance with.
The Uber Black of the past gave riders a two-minute window from the time the car arrived to the time they should be inside the car, but the new Uber Black has extended this wait time to 15 minutes.
