Waze updated with motorcycle routing, voice commands, and HOV route support

MotoGP of Aragon- Qualifying

Simply say "OK Waze", and it will start listening out for your Waze Voice Commands.

First up is motorcycle mode, a feature that has been frequently requested by users in the past and which will give riders tailored routes and arrival times based on their chosen mode of transport.

Ahead of millions of people hitting the roads over Christmas, Waze launches a new bundle of features to make journeys more bearable over the festive period and beyond.

Waze is owned by Google but it offers a different experience than Google Maps.

"Whether you're riding with one passenger or more; in a hybrid, electric, or clean-fuel vehicle; with a special pass; or a combination of all of the above, Waze will determine your optimal route".

When you select motorcycle as your vehicle type, Waze will find alternative routes for you, so you can get to your destination quicker. Just hit your settings to tell Waze that's what you're driving, and routes will be optimized for your hog.

Another new feature is Talk to Waze, which now lets your voice control the app by saying "OK Waze" (similar to "OK Google"). Not only is it convenient, it's safer, allowing you to stay focused on the road ahead.

This feature provides Wazers with additional navigation options and arrival times, based on high-occupancy-vehicle lanes (aka carpool lanes) on their route. Users can enable the feature by going to Settings Sound & voice Talk to Waze Toggle Listen for "OK Waze" in the app. 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.

Talk to Waze is available to English-speaking users in Canada, the US, UK, Australia, South Africa, Ireland, and New Zealand, with more languages coming soon.

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.
