Hey, Anybody notice when the rider sends you a message in the new app it makes no alert sound.
I'm driving along towards pickup and paying attention the road and after arriving at pickup I notice on the app that the rider has messaged me about something important regarding the pickup, sometimes more than once. This has been the case every time the rider has messaged me. Shouldn't there be an alert sound associated with receiving a message. Is this case for everyone?

I especially enjoy how the font for text messages is light grey making it extremely difficult to see... Even more so at 60 mph.

Way to go Uber. Glad our safety is at the top of your mind...
I think this may be a glitch with regard to how the app switches from day mode to night mode and vice versa. Like it changes the map without changing the overlay colors (including text) sometimes.

After bringing this to Ubers attention via the app feedback section I now get voice alerts when messaged by a rider.

I get sound alerts about half the time which is pretty good by Uber standards. Most messages I get are the kind to be ignored anyway. " Are you coming ?" "I don't see you" "I'm here" - (Where specifically is "here") , etc.
