You can start navigation, send a report, add a stop, and more all by voice.

Social navigation platform Waze announced new navigation mode for motorcyclists today, available for both Android and iOS users.

OK Waze, what's new?

"In addition, safety of all road users is always a top priority for Waze and we encourage drivers to use the app as it is intended - by docking the phone and leveraging hands-free functionality during their entire route for an undistracted drive.The new "OK Waze" feature allows us to continue to innovate on safety and support better driving habits".

The Google-owned traffic and navigation app just added a motorcycle mode, which offers "specialized routing to help make finding freedom on the open road simpler and faster", the company wrote in a blog post.

HOV routing will give you directions that include carpool lanes, once you activate the option in the Navigation section of the app's Settings, and select the HOV pass that applies to you and your carpool crew. It's worth noting here that while it is only available in English to begin with, it will expand to additional languages in the future. Also enjoy using voice commands by simply turning on the feature in "Settings" and "Allow Waze" to access your microphone. To switch the feature on, you'll need to provide the app with some extra details about your vehicle and its occupants because the requirements for using carpool lanes vary in different places.

The feature is now supported in Arizona, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Georgia, Hawaii, Louisiana, Maryland, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Nevada, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Texas, Utah, Virginia, Washington, Wisconsin, and D.C as well as Toronto, Vancouver, and Montreal. The feature is available for English-speaking users in the U.S., U.K., Canada, Australia, South Africa, Ireland, and New Zealand.

For the first time, Waze are launching a new motorcycle mode, enabling the 1.1 million motorcycle, moped and scooter owners* to finally beat the traffic and become part of the 90m strong global Waze community. To Waze on a motorbike, go to Settings Vehicle Type Motorcycles in your app.
