How many times have you found yourself mocking Waze’s computerized voice? Well, now you can put yourself in the hot seat thanks to an update in the Waze app. Starting today, you can now record your own voice to replace the boring default voice.

To get started, head on over to the Waze app and click on the Settings panel. From here, tap on “Sound and Voice,” and proceed to record the basic navigation phrases. Some of the phrases include “All set, let’s go!,” and “Turn right.”Now, keep in mind, you don’t actually have to use your own voice. You can use a friend, family member, or just about anyone. All they have to do is spit out some basic navigation phrases and you’re good to go. Another note that should be worth mentioning is that full street name prompts are not supported.

Waze always likes to keep things interesting. This isn’t their first foray into custom voices. The app has previously brought voices such as T-Pain, Mr. T, Owen Wilson and many others to the app.

Having the ability to use your own voice in the app is a really neat feature and I imagine a bunch of folks are going to be using it. Think about how cool it would be to freak out one of your friends the next time they’re in your car?

Anyways, the whole process shouldn’t take you more than a couple of minutes to complete. The update is now available on Google Play and App Store.
