According to a press release from Uber, they are unveiling a new feature and launching it in three cities to test it out. The feature will allow both the driver and the passenger to record audio from the ride. When a trip begins the driver and the passenger will be given the option to record audio through the app. When 'Record Audio' is selected both parties can separately record the trip. The app will let riders know when they are being recorded. When the ride ends the audio will be encrypted and saved on the rider and driver's devices. The only way Uber will have access to the audio is if the driver or passenger emails the file as part of a dispute. They also working on a seatbelt reminder that will come out sometime next year. The new audio feature launches next month in select test cities.
