Huge Waze update brings support for motorcycles and voice commands

Huge Waze update brings support for motorcycles and voice commands

Next up is the new Talk to Waze feature, which gives users the power to command the Waze app with only the sound of your voice and two magic words: "OK Waze." . It's a seemingly small change to the voice commands feature that already existed in Waze, but it's one that will have a huge impact because it allows for hands-free initiation of requests. Using the simple phrase of "OK, Waze", users can enter an address to navigate to, report alerts, potholes or speeds cameras and be given an ETA time, so they don't have to take their eyes off the road and use their mobile. The list of supported regions is likely to grow in the coming months.

Waze is an app that tends to get new features on the regular, but the update landing today is definitely worth paying a little more attention to.
