Waze Let's You Record Your Voice For Directions

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

Assuming the likes of Morgan Freeman and Homer Simpson weren't good enough, Waze has a new feature that enables users to use their own voice for navigation instructions. This feature is now available in Waze Android app and it's still not sure when it will be ported to iOS.

To try it out for yourself, you can head into settings and choose the "Sound & voice" option, and then look for the new "Waze voice recorder" option. So sorry, no baby talk recording for you. You'll lose details such as street names, but you'll gain the satisfaction of hearing your navigation app say "turn left here, ".

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

Simply locate the voice recorder in setting, under the Sound and Voice section of the Waze application. Currently, the voice recordings are available only to you and can not be shared with other users. The makers of Waze suggest having fun with it by singing directions, or even yodeling them (we're not making that up, they really suggest that).

Using custom voices isn't a first for navigation applications. As to why that is, it's probably because Google owns Waze after all so it made sense to update the app on Android first. According to Waze, "Introducing the Waze voice recorder!"
