Waze teams-up with Universal Pictures to bring celebrity-powered navigation

Google-owned Waze has teamed-up with Universal Pictures to spice-up its navigation service. The deal is to bring Hollywood actors to the mix, delivering the voices you know (and love?) into your vehicle.

The first star that will guide you along the streets is comedian Kevin Hart, who is using this opportunity to promote his aptly titled film Ride Along. We find his voice more appealing than rather synthetic voices used in most navigation apps. You can hear (and see) him giving you drive directions from a short demo video below. Check it out and do let us know how you like this celebrity-powered navigation. We kinda like it…
