Uber Driver App Update 1/18/16 requires driver to accept new 'permission' - TXT

When I opened the app to go online yesterday, the Uber Driver App required an update.
I downloaded the (Android) update and before going online,
the app required me to 'accept' a new app permission: TXT.

This happened just a week after getting a notice from Uber that the driver's Uber Phone Number (Twilio number) may change on occasion - and to be sure to use only the Uber/Twilio number to send txt messages to paxs.

Anyone else smell Uber trying to CONTROL the communications between the driver and the driver's customer?

Be VERY careful what you TXT to riders - it is logged by Uber.
