Waze has offered plenty of fun voice options that you can use to help navigate you through traffic to your destination, from Dateline’s Keith Morrison to Morgan Freeman. And the latest options include Batman and The Riddler.
Available through to October 31, 2020, and in partnership with Warner Bros. Consumer Products (WBCP) and DC, you can choose between having the hero or the villain guide your route. Alongside the recognizable voice, they also say recognizable phrases from the films.
Kevin Conroy provides the voice of Batman and Wally Wingert The Riddler, and the voices are available globally in English, Spanish, and Portuguese. You can also follow The Riddler’s clues or enter “stealth mode” like Batman to remain incognito on your journey. (No, he won’t help you evade the police, of course, so stick to the speed limit and obey all road rules!)
Additionally, uou can change the Waze car icons and hop in the Batmobile or The Riddler’s racer to guide you on your way, and select the Batman or The Riddler moods to heroically or cleverly outsmart traffic.
“By partnering with Waze on this innovative interactive program, we are giving fans the opportunity to get behind the wheel of their own reimaged Batmobile as the iconic DC Super Hero Batman who is known for having incredible gadgets and the coolest vehicles,” says Robert Oberschelp, Senior Vice President, Global Brand Product, Warner Bros. Consumer Products. “As fans gear up to celebrate this year’s Batman Day, this will add some fun to their drive and take their imagination to new places.”
“We are so excited to be partnering with WBCP and DC to bring this experience to our users,” adds Erin Bellsey, Head of Brand Programs, Waze. “Given the year we’ve had, I think we all need some superhero support to guide our way, and we can’t think of a better way to do it than with the first ever Waze program that features two iconic characters’ Voice navigation, Moods, and Cars. We’re also thrilled to be working with our Audio Player partner, Spotify, to bring the experience to life with fun music for drivers around the world.”
