Uber Black and Uber Black SUV riders in the United States will now be able to enable the Quiet Mode to politely indicate you need some quiet on your way to your destination, the official blog explains. Or just maybe not in the mood to make small talk during your trip?

Uber says the changes have been implemented to help provide riders with the best possible experience. Uber Black costs 100 percent more than Uber X and 200 percent more than the Uber Pool, according to The Verge. To avoid this social awkwardness, Uber has introduced Quiet Mode.
