How To

Change the voice on Waze to Cookie Monster, Woody, and more


The default voice on GPS apps like Waze can get grating. If you’re on a long road trip, you might as well listen to a voice that isn’t driving you up a wall.

Well, there’s a way to do it! Soon, you will be guided down the road by Cookie Monster, Buzz Lightyear, Woody, and even DJ Khaled.

How to change the voice on Waze

Step 1: Open Waze

Adjust Waze voice

Step 2: Click on the sound settings (the speaker icon)

Waze voice selector

Step 3: Click on the drop-down arrow next to “voice directions”


Step 4: Choose the voice you want

You can also choose to hear your directions in a different language in this option. 

Record your own voice


If you want something done right, you have to do it yourself.

Waze also gives users the option to record their own voice for GPS directions. If you do it, it’s going to take you a bit of time to record every option Waze has available, but you could have some fun with it. Rather than recording what Waze tells you to, you can technically say whatever you want. Obviously, you should say “turn left” when it tells you too, but non-directional options are yours to mess with! You could even record your girlfriend’s voice to have her nag you the whole way to your destination!

Wrapping up

No matter which option you go with, remember to be safe on the road. Also, if you choose Cookie Monster, remember to pack a few cookies just in case he gets hungry.
