Waze now lets you record your own voice navigation prompts

Waze now lets you record your own voice navigation prompts

The renewed app was launched at the end of last week in the Google Play Store, which is only for Android users, and it allows anyone with a device that supports the app to record voice commands.

You can access the voice recorder in the Waze settings under "Sound & voice". Once there, you should see a "New!" badge on top of Voice Recorder. Whoever does it simply records all the basic navigation phrases and you're ready to go. You'll lose details such as street names, but you'll gain the satisfaction of hearing your navigation app say "turn left here, - and don't worry, everyone supports your life decisions".

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. Only one recording is stored at one time and you can re-record them as many times as you need until you're satisfied.

Waze is a community-based traffic and navigation app that improves your daily commute. Waze isn't just satisfied with letting celebrities like Morgan Freeman or recently, Mr. T, guide you as you navigate around a familiar or unfamiliar area.

Using custom voices isn't a first for navigation applications. 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.
