  • Waze Updated with Routing for Motorcycles,

The new motorbike option will make Waze more useful and enjoyable for those who enjoy riding on two wheels, and the Talk to Waze feature allows complete handsfree interaction with a new hotword "Ok Waze". Using the simple phrase of "OK, Waze", users can enter an address to navigate to, report alerts, potholes or speeds cameras and be given an ETA time, so they don't have to take their eyes off the road and use their mobile.

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.

Next up is the new Talk to Waze feature, which gives users the power to command the Waze app with only the sound of your voice and two magic words: "OK Waze." . No matter where you are, it's usually not safe to be trying to study your device while driving to see what's up with traffic or look for a gas station along your route. The company plans to add more languages soon.

In order to enable Waze voice commands, you'll have to switch them on, however.

Waze Updated with Routing for Motorcycles,

To turn this feature on, head to Settings Sound & voice Talk to Waze Toggle Listen for "OK Waze" on.

The Waze voice commands are already available in English for users in the USA, the U.K., Canada, Ireland, New Zealand, Australia and South Africa.

Finally, we come to high occupancy vehicle, or HOV, route support. If you're driving a fuel-efficient auto, go to Settings, tap Navigation, and select Vehicle Type. If you're carpooling, you'll need to go into Settings Navigation Add Toll/HOV pass and then select from a list of available passes in your area. Those who qualify for carpool lanes because they're driving a hybrid or electric auto must go to Settings Navigation Vehicle Type. The HOV feature is now supported in 22 U.S. markets plus 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. Just hit your settings to tell Waze that's what you're driving, and routes will be optimized for your hog.
