A few weeks from now, Filipinos will experience an all-new feature of navigational mobile application Waze which will have a voice over feature in Tagalog.

According to GMA News TV’s “State of the Nation,” Waze users will no longer need to touch their phones to update destinations while driving.

“Now that there’s the safe zone, you’re able to dock your phones. You’re still able to see Waze. As long as it’s within the four inches that’s legally allowed,” Mona Weng; global strategic partnerships manager of Waze.

“You can actually update your destinations with voice commands. So that way you don’t have to touch the phones at all,” she added.

“We’re releasing a whole suite in Tagalog with both the voice navigation which will include street names and a Tagalog voice command. We estimate it would come out sometime in the middle of July,” Weng said.

The new IRR, apparently, gave Waze a breath of fresh air.
