Waze, a Google-owned community-based traffic and navigation app, is now available for download on the Windows Phone Store.
Waze for Windows Phone was released almost the same time that Instagram was made available for the said platform. It is a free download that is 27MB in size and only works on Windows Phone 8 devices.
Below are the features of Waze for WP8:
* Live routing based on community-generated, real-time traffic and road info.
* Community-contributed road alerts including accidents, hazards, police traps, road closures and more.
* Automatic re-routing as conditions on the road change.
* Learns your frequent destinations, commuting hours and preferred routes.
* Finds the cheapest gas station along your route.
* Simple sharing of your ETA, expected delays and a heads up upon arrival.
* Earn points and move up the ranks in your community as you contribute road info.
* Live maps, constantly edited and updated by Waze community map editors.
In addition, Waze has also added Kevin Hart’s voice commands on the said app. For the unacquainted, Kevin Hart is an American actor and comedian and star of the upcoming comedy Ride Along!
To get Kevin Hart’s voice, go to Settings -> Sound -> and then select “English – Ride Along” as your Voice Language.
