You Can Now Use Your Own Voice In Waze

Navigate the streets with your own voice

Don’t like the robotic voice that Waze comes with when you first install it on your phone? No worries – there’s now an option in the widely-used navigation software that allows you to use your own voice when driving around the city.

Waze slipped the new feature in the new update for Android, and users can now record navigational directions in their own voices. There’s 39 phrases that need to be recorded, generic things like “turn right”, “stop” and “let’s go”.

Unfortunately, using your own voice for navigation has downsides – you’ll no longer be able to hear street names spoken aloud. Still, the feature is nice, if only for the fact that you can probably prank your friends by stealing their phone for 5 minutes while you record alternative directions. To use Waze with your own voice, you just have to navigate to settings and then sound & voice, and record the 39 phrases required.
