Waze now has a motorcycle option, “OK Waze” voice command

Waze has pushed an update to their iOS and Android app to include a new vehicle type, the motorcycle.

The motorcycle vehicle type option is the third unique vehicle type supported by Waze and comes complete with specialized routing to help riders navigate the roads simpler and faster.

In addition to the real-time road updates and alerts, users riding in motorcycle mode will be directed on routes optimized for motorcyclists based on where fellow Wazers-on-wheels are riding. Waze says that the more you ride in the motorcycle setting, the smarter the routing will become.


To Waze on a motorbike go to Settings > Vehicle Type > Motorcycles in your app.

In addition, the new motorcycle option, Waze has also introduced the Talk to Waze feature which allows you to command the Waze app by simply saying “OK Waze.” With the command, you can now initiate your drive, get a preview of the route ahead, send reports, and add a pit stop.

Talk to Waze is currently available for English-speaking Wazers in the US, UK, Canada, Australia, South Africa, Ireland, and New Zealand, and will continually roll out in more languages soon. But if you live in those areas, you may activate the feature by going to Settings > Sound & voice > Talk to Waze > Toggle Listen for “OK Waze” on.
