As a part of the deal actor/comedian Kevin Hart is the first person to provide his voice to the navigation app. Hart, best known for his American comedy show Real Husbands, is using this medium to promote his forthcoming movie Ride Along. To enable Hart s voice in the app go to Settings -> Sound and select English Ride Along as the preferred language.
For those not familiar, Waze is a mapping/navigation application with a social twist, wherein users update the app with real-time traffic data. Earlier this year, Google acquired the Israeli startup for a reported price of almost $1 billion.
