Waze App Gains Support for Motorcycles, 'OK Waze' Voice Control, Carpool Lanes

Presents post 1200x628 Google's Waze goes hands-free with new voice command and gets motorcycle mode for tailored navigation

An evolution of our existing Waze Voice Commands, you can now initiate your drive, get a preview of the route ahead, send reports, and add a pit stop-all without lifting a finger from the wheel.

Now, if you allow Waze to access your device's microphone from within the settings menu, the entire navigation can be carried out hands-free by using the "OK, Waze" command.

Motorcycle mode will offer routes that have been optimized for bikers based on where other Waze users who are on motorcycles are riding. Today, it's getting three new features that Waze says have been among the most frequently requested by users.

The navigation app (which is owned by Google's parent company Alphabet) just announced a slew of new features in "one of its biggest updates ever", just in time for the holidays. Waze says more languages and regions will be added soon.

The major change is the introduction of a new Motorcycle vehicle type option and two new motorcycle helmet-rocking Waze moods.
