  • Waze updated w/ new voice recorder feature for recording your own turn-by-turn audio

Crowdsourced navigation application Waze has introduced an interesting new feature, which will allow users to use their own voices for voice prompts.

Those who are friends with Morgan Freeman will have the best possible voice that one can use in Waze, but any talented actor or singer will do if you can convince him or her to record them on your phone.

The newest update to Waze adds in a new Voice Recorder menu in the Waze settings under Sound & Voice. 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. So sorry, no baby talk recording for you.

Millions of people use navigation apps like Waze or Google Maps to get turn-by-turn voice directions during their daily commute or while running errands. You will not hear the street names spoken loudly while you're using the feature. Now it will let you record your own voice or someone else's voice and it will be your own personal guide as you drive or go to wherever you need to go. For instance, you could make the Waze app sound annoyed and record things like, "I'm not talking to you anymore", and, "Find your own way", for each prompt.

If you are somehow exhausted of listening to robotic voices while using voice navigation features, there is now a new way that will save you.
