You can use these voice commands to begin navigation, preview the route ahead of you, ask for your arrival time, and more. Waze already had Waze Voice Commands, but now, you can do everything without ever having to remove your hands from the steering wheel.
The new motorcycle mode will direct bikers to routes that are optimized for two or three wheels, based on where other users have traveled. Talk to Waze is now available for English-speaking Wazers in the US, UK, Canada, Australia, South Africa, Ireland, and New Zealand, and will continually roll out in more languages soon.
Waze is getting a couple of new features today as the Google-owned navigation app targets two-wheeled motorists and doubles down on its safety credentials. Waze promised to roll it out to more languages in the near future. If you live in an area that has such lanes (sometimes called diamond lanes or carpool lanes), these lanes will be now be used to designate the most optimal route.
Lastly, new is HOV (high occupancy vehicle) route support, which Waze says is the first for any navigation app.
Waze chose to implement these products by selecting some of the most-requested features offered up by its community of engaged users, the company says, and they definitely do sound like they'll boost overall convenience for fans of Waze navigation. These settings will vary by city, but you can tell the app if you've got an eligible fuel-efficient vehicle or if you have a carpool.
Sadly though, Talk to Waze is only limited to the US, UK, Canada, Australia, South Africa, Ireland and New Zealand only.
The feature is now supported in Arizona, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Georgia, Hawaii, Louisiana, Maryland, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Nevada, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Texas, Utah, Virginia, Washington, Wisconsin, and D.C as well as Toronto, Vancouver, and Montreal.
Motorcyclists who use the Waze service will be able to upload information and tips for fellow riders, in the same way drivers have been able to since Waze launched. To activate Talk to Waze, just follow these steps: Settings Sound & voice Talk to Waze Shift Listen for "OK Waze" on.
