The voice of God will navigate you to your destination on Waze

Would it be easier for you to trust turn-by-turn directions if you heard them come from the voice of God? Morgan Freeman, the actor who portrayed God in two movies, will now be one of the vocal choices for those using Waze's navigational app. You might remember that Waze uses crowdsourced traffic information to help drivers reach their destinations quickly and safely. And Waze also helps users smoke out the cops by passing along the location of their speed traps.

Google ended up buying Waze in 2013 for a price slightly north of $1 billion. Besides traffic information, the app also will help you find the lowest price for gas. And when you connect to Facebook, you can track your friends and family as you all drive to the same location. Waze is a free app available from the App Store, Google Play Store and Windows Phone Store.

And now, the voice of God will help you find your way from point "A" to point "B". Freeman is promoting his new movie "London Has Fallen," and is in character as vice president Martin Trumbull. The comments he says on Waze, in addition to actual directions, include "The American people are counting on you to drive. Let's go," and "Take the fifth exit. Always take the fifth." Freeman's voice will be available to Waze users through March 31st.

If you need the help of God to get from one place to another, click the appropriate link to install the app on your phone. You can check out Freeman playing God in "Bruce Almighty" by clicking on the video at the top of the story.


Thanks for the tip!

"on bridge ahead, turn right if you want to meet me"
"its up to you to turn left or right, you'll reach your destination, somehow.."
"you see that people with white shirt? smash him"

The Jewish people who created the app went way too far. Sacrilege!

It would be even cooler if Morgan cursed you and brought down great vengeance upon thee. No wait...I mean it would be cooler if Samuel L. Jackson was the voice of god but with sudden mood swings when you did something wrong or miss your exit etc.
