You can now record your own voice in Waze - here's how

This way, if any of the celebrity voices doesn't do the trick for you, and you keep on missing turns, you can see if you'll respond better to the sound of your own voice.

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. However, it is expected to make an appearance to the iOS platform soon as well. Or perhaps you could record useless voiceover for the navigation cues.

Orange Is The New Black is up to its 5th season. "We were quite offended by our targets' responses (or lack thereof)", it added. It would seem their view on the matter has changed.

Having the ability to use your own voice in the app is a really neat feature and I imagine a bunch of folks are going to be using it. Think about how cool it would be to freak out one of your friends the next time they're in your auto? From here, you can record voiceovers for general navigation prompts. Just record all 39 phrases in Waze and you're good to go. The recorder also contains a list of all prompts that are used by the application. Sure, you will have to put in a fair bit of work for that but there you have it.

Another exciting benefit of this function, which may be more useful than getting instructions with your voice, is the possibility of introducing a partial functionality within Waze for a language or dialect that is not supported by the app.
