Waze Now Lets Users Record Their Own Voice For Directions On Android

Share

Well, now you can put yourself in the hot seat thanks to an update in the Waze app. Starting today, you can now record your own voice to replace the boring default voice.

Now available on Android devices (and coming soon to iOS), the Waze Voice Recorder allows you to add an extra hit of personality to your turn-by-turn directions and follow in the footsteps of Waze voice greats like Morgan Freeman, Keith Morrison, and recent additions, Mr. T and Disney/Pixar's Cars 3 stars Lightning McQueen and Jackson Storm. From here, tap on "Sound and Voice", and proceed to record the basic navigation phrases. This feature is only available on the Android version of the app for the moment, with no word on when it will be made available to iOS users. Once you do that, you can record your own prompts. And if you take a different turn than the navigation says, you can listen to yourself yell at you to turn around.

Obviously, you'll want to make sure you supervise whoever records the phrases for you or else you might fall victim to a prank of a "loved one" saying the incorrect phrases.

EPA wants to open up the process to the hundreds of applicants that were not considered by the Obama administration. The measure would effectively prevent many scientific experts from serving on the oversight board.

Waze is a community-based traffic and navigation app that improves your daily commute.

Granted, many people don't like the way how they sound when they hear their voice recorded. Record your own voice directions to guide you on the road. You can update your app through its Google Play page.
