How To: Get Famous People Like Morgan Freeman to Navigate Your Waze Directions

Get Famous People Like Morgan Freeman to Navigate Your Waze Directions

Navigation app Waze occasionally gives you the option to have a celebrity voice provide directions for your trip, like this famous European with a funny voice, or this decidedly less-famous European with a funny voice.

It'll be hard for Waze to top its latest addition to the roster, though. He's the man with the voice fit to play God—Morgan Freeman. You've heard him narrate the hellish journey of a waddle of emperor penguins fighting for the continuation of their species. And now he can narrate your very own hellish trip to Indiana, or wherever it is you're going.

Update: Morgan Freeman is no longer an option in Waze, but you can use the same directions below to choose another celebrity voice; the list is always changing, so you never know who might pop up.

How to Get Morgan Freeman's Voice on Waze

If you don't have the Waze app, you can download it for Android or iOS. When ready, open the app and hit the icon on the bottom left to bring up the menu, tap the cog icon to open up Settings, then tap on Sound.

(1) Tap on the Menu icon, then the cog. (2) Then tap Sound.

In the Sound settings, tap on Navigation guidance or Voice language, which will open up a list of available voices. Then select your desired voice, in this case, Morgan Freeman from the new London Has Fallen film.

(1) Tap on Navigation guidance. (2) Then choose your desired navigation voice.

If Morgan Freeman isn't your jam, KFC spokesman Colonel Sanders is still available. Waze periodically adds new voices, but will also remove voices after a while. So act quickly if you're interested in hearing Morgan Freeman navigate your trip, as there's no telling how long he'll remain an option.

Morgan's good, but Arnold Schwarzenegger was my favorite. If he's not your preferred voice, let us know in the comments who you want to hear directing you.

I want a Brian Blessed voice, or Patrick Stewart, or the Star Trek computer, or a female with an accent from Newcastle England. Maybe Cheryl Cole

Don LaFontaine would have been awesome; wish they could replicate his voice somehow.

Billy Connelly or Alan Cumming

I'd love to have a Scottish man like Robin Willams did in one if his stand missed your fucking right
Or Samuel L Jackson.. he'd be a good one.

Sir Anthony Hopkins as Lecter.
