Google‘s all about making machines sound human, whether it’s on your phone, with Search or through the Assistant, the idea is that you talk to Google the way you talk to another human being. Now, it looks like they’re taking that human-like interaction a step further with what looks like a new addition to Google Maps.
Waze is awesome (for the most part). It has come to a point where I cannot imagine life without Waze telling where to go and which route is the least congested during peak hours. But, while Waze is awesome for people who drive cars, they’ve always left out our fellow road buddies, the motorcyclist.
Now, that’s about to change.

That’s right, Google Maps is getting a fresh new UI and icons with an upcoming update that will make it easier for users to navigate.
Waze just released a brand new update that that lets you record your own custom voice prompts. Yep, say hello to the Waze Voice Recorder because we’re all set, let’s go.
Your daily commute is going to get easier as Waze has added Spotify integration within its navigation app. So if you’re shuffling between your favourite tracks or playlist, you can do it all from the same Waze interface.
One of the most popular maps and navigation applications in the world has been rebranded. It’s got a whole new name and look, but I’m not sure how well it will sit with its fans. Are you ready to hear the name? Here we go.
The holiday season is upon us, but while that brings a lot of joy and fun times for most, there is always the issue of getting caught in traffic jams when you balik kampung and then again when you return to KL. The good news is that popular navigation application Waze is here to help ease your traffic woes.
I’m sure that if you’ve travelled to work by car for some period of time, you would know most (if not all) of the logical routes to your office. The only reason we switch on navigation apps (like Waze) in the morning is to find out which is the least congested route, but doing so every morning, having to manually set your location each time can be rather cumbersome.
So what if you don’t want to have to set your location each morning but still want to find out which is the least congested/fastest way to get to work on time? Google Maps has the answer.
When we announced that Google Maps‘ offline navigation had finally rolled out in Malaysia, many rejoiced, but apparently not everyone is happy with being able to rely on navigation applications just a little more. UMNO lawmaker Datuk Raime Unggi said in Parliament today that Malaysian dependency on navigation apps to find their way around the maze-like labyrinth of Kuala Lumpur’s bustling city centre, was possibly exposing our country to “external threats” from foreign countries.
Announced during the Google I/O in May earlier this year, Google has finally begun the gradual rollout of its new Google Maps offline navigation feature. Users can expect to see this feature in the latest version of the Google Maps app which will allow users to save locations, search, and access the app’s turn-by-turn navigation offline.
As good as all of this sounds, there is a slight catch though.
