Waze, the popular maps and navigation app that Google acquired earlier this year, has signed a deal with Universal Studios that would see actors promote their upcoming movies via the app by providing the voice behind the turn-by-turn navigation.
First up, we have comedian Kevin Hart who can be seen on screen when Ride Along releases in 2014. Here’s a video of his recording session. Personally, I wish Waze had tried to strike a deal with Last Vegas instead. It would have been so much cooler to have the option to listen to Robert De Niro or Morgan Freeman.
Also, there are a ton of roundabouts here in India. Good to know Waze has us covered too.
