"OK Waze" Voice Control, HOV Lane Support in Canada and More

30 Ноября 2017

As announced, users can now utilize an "OK Waze" voice prompt, which can then be used to navigate to an address, get an ETA, let you report something during your commute, plus a whole lot more.

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

First up, the update now includes a Motorcycle vehicle type option, the third unique vehicle type supported by Waze.

Motorcycle vehicle type will also give you a more accurate ETA, which could be very different from ETA for cars.

Given that Waze's routing recommendations are based on routes from other users, it seems like the ideal navigation app to highlight the differences between vehicle and motorcycle travel. To Waze on a motorbike, go to Settings Vehicle Type Motorcycles in your app. Not only is it convenient, it's safer, allowing you to stay focused on the road ahead.

If you've never ridden a motorcycle in your life, there's still plenty in this update for you. Still, the Waze voice commands are in line with Google's own command, which is saying, "OK Google", for hands-free access to Google Assistant.

To start chatting with Waze today, head to Settings Sound & voice Talk to Waze Toggle Listen for "OK Waze" on. You can use these voice commands to begin navigation, preview the route ahead of you, ask for your arrival time, and more.

Waze also introduced a carpool mode, available only in the USA and Canada, which suggests additional navigation options for high-occupancy-vehicle lanes (carpool lanes). If you're driving a fuel-efficient auto, go to Settings, tap Navigation, and select Vehicle Type.

To enable HOV lane support, go to Settings Navigation Add Toll/HOV pass Select from a pre-populated list of passes available in your area.

Do you prefer rolling on two wheels instead of four?

The feature is available now for English speaking Wazers in a few countries including the US, UK, Canada, and Australia, but the company says that other languages and territories are on the way.

Waze supports carpool lanes in 21 USA states and Washington, D.C.as well as Montreal, Toronto and Vancouver, Canada.
