Let Morgan Freeman navigate you around town
Can’t get enough of Morgan Freeman’s soothing voice? Fire up Waze, and let the actor navigate your next trip.
As a marketing tie-in for London Has Fallen—the sequel to Olympus Has Fallen—Morgan Freeman will now guide users through traffic. As far as marketing goes, I think we can all agree this isn’t the worst thing in the world. (Who is responsible for putting Deadpool in Waze?)
We know Freeman is an incredibly gifted actor, but his voice is taking on a following all on its own. If you’re unhappy with the stock options offered in Waze, flipping on the Morgan Freeman option might not be a bad way to get through a long commute. It may certainly make your commute more enjoyable. Or not.
It appears as though the new feature only works for Waze users in the U.S.—sorry everyone else. Oh, and in case you were wondering, London Has Fallen is scheduled to hit theaters on March 4.
