Uber to record audio during all rides

Uber has confirmed that it is working on a safety feature that will record audio in all rides. The feature will be piloted in some Brazilian and Mexican cities next month. The new audio-recording feature will allow drivers to automatically record all rides. Riders will also be able to activate the feature via the app’s safety toolkit before entering the car.

Interestingly, riders and drivers will not be able to listen to the recording. The audio is not discarded even if the rider does not report anything and can be made available to the authorities if required. This feature is Uber’s way to reduce violence, unwanted advances and inappropriate behavior in its rides.
