Uber will now let drivers and riders record audio during trips for safety

At the beginning of a trip, riders and drivers can enable this feature by clicking the shield icon in the app’s Safety Toolkit and selecting “Record Audio.” While both riders and drivers can record individual trips, drivers have the option to leave the feature on while they’re actively seeking rides. The app will notify the rider if the driver is using the feature. Uber first launched audio recording in Latin America in 2019.

    If you are a rider and you are recording your ride on your phone within the Uber app, can you still use your phone for other functions?

    Not sure I understand this feature, don't most drivers video and audio record rides anyways?

    Interesting, this will help with the whole "he said/she said" stuff at least.
