Morgan Freeman has one of the most recognizable voices in the world.
If you use the Waze app to navigate around town, you can now select the actor’s voice to give you turn-by-turn directions. According to Waze, Freeman’s voice is one of the most requested among users and now thanks to a promotion with the upcoming film London Has Fallen, Freeman is available on the app to be your co-pilot.
To set Freeman’s voice in the app, simply head to the Settings menu and under Sound > Voice Language you should see Morgan Freeman as an option. His voice will be in character as the U.S. vice president, the role he plays in the new movie. To make things interesting, directions are addressed to drivers as if they are the president and will be highlighted with lines from the movie to give drivers a sense of urgency in their journey.
