Waze now lets you record your own voice navigation prompts

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

In addition to the stock voices and handful of celebrity voices the Waze navigation app offers - such as Morgan Freeman and Owen Wilson as Lightning McQueen - it will now let you record your own voice for navigation directions.

The traffic and navigation app, Waze - GPS, Maps & Traffic has received a new update that bumps the version to 4.23.0.4 from its previous version 4.22.1.0. That's all there is to it. Keep in mind that any directions that you don't record will default to the usual Waze voice. Then you can listen to yourself tell you where to go. And then you can yell at yourself yelling at yourself that you know what you're doing. Currently, the voice recordings are available only to you and can not be shared with other users. Only one recording is stored at one time and you can re-record them as many times as you need until you're satisfied.

HBO, ITV line up Princess Diana doc
Documentary Films and United Kingdom broadcaster ITV will both broadcast a feature doc about the late Diana, Princess of Wales. Also, as the documentary features Prince Harry and Prince William , fans of the British monarchy will especially want to watch.


You won't get localized voice navigation with this feature, but it should still be useful to some people.

Add some personality to your driving directions with Waze! During the recording process, Waze will throw some of the commonly-used navigation commands like "Turn left", "All Set". Or perhaps you could record useless voiceover for the navigation cues. Since Waze is owned by Google, it pretty much made sense that the update arrived on Android first.
