What you need to know
- Waze is running a Boy George takeover this Pride Month.
- You'll be able to have him as your navigation voice throughout the month of June.
- Waze also introduced new moods and vehicles.
The month of June is celebrated as LGBT Pride worldwide, and as such, Waze is welcoming Boy George to their platform for a Pride Month takeover. With the latest Waze update, you'll be able to listen to Boy George's voice direct you to places in your car while sharing with you words of advice in his own way.
Writing in a blog post, the Waze team said:
There's a bit more to it than that as well. Boy George also curated a new Pride playlist on Spotify for customers to stream through the Waze music player. It has a variety of artists, including Boy George himself, George Michael, David Bowie, and so on, making it easy to enjoy a fabulous ride with some musical icons.
Other than that, Waze will be adding new moods and vehicles to the app. There'll be two new Ca-ma-Chamelon and Goldsmobile navigation vehicles. You'll also be able to choose between zesty, spicy, quirky, or fancy moods in the app. It may not be as helpful as Google Maps' new locator for businesses with gender-neutral restrooms, but it's still a fun way to celebrate Pride.
The Boy George experience is available in the Waze app between June 2nd and June 30th. It can be downloaded on any of the best Android phones.
