We've always had a limited choice of voices - until now. 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. "In your Waze settings, tap Sound & voice to access Voice recorder, and get your kids and friends to record a favorite voice style".

The feature could also be useful for users who prefer languages that the app doesn't support yet - you could record commands for a parent who speaks another dialect, for example.

This follows the announcement that the service added Mr. T's voice for users in the USA and Canada.

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.

Waze has been pretty on top of current trends, adding in custom celebrity voices for turn-by-turn directions, and the latest update lets you choose between either Owen Wilson as Lightning Mcqueen, or Armie Hammer as Jackson Storm from the upcoming Cars 3 movie. Only one recording is stored at one time and you can re-record them as many times as you need until you're satisfied.

Introducing the Waze voice recorder!
