For many drivers looking for the quicker route to their destination, WAZE is there app of choice. Haven’t heard of WAZE? Well, it is the world’s largest community-based traffic and navigation app that allows for interactive, up-to-date traffic notifications with users able to update road hazards, traffic jams, and communicate about updates on morning and afternoon rush hours.
Instead of having the standard robotic human voice, users can now receive directions from a voice they may find very familiar. Funny man, Stephen Colbert is the new voice of WAZE. We wondered if Mr. Colbert listens to himself give himself directions on the road? Colbert shared, “For years, I navigated the roadways using a compass, a sextant and the guidance offered by the stars. But now, I can just listen to my own dulcet tones instructing me on Waze.” Question answered.
He, along with WAZE users, can select his voice to order your way around the roads until September 22.
