Social navigation apps are gaining momentum by the day and Waze is continuing to innovate with a new update that adds voice alerts for traffic. As the video demonstrates, if a driver sees a hazard – be it a speed trap or a patch of ice – he can record a short voice memo that will be pushed to other drivers in the area. When they approach the afflicted section of road or plan a route that includes the hazard, the voice alert automatically plays, warning them of the issue. The updated app is available now for the iPhone, and Waze says that Android, Blackberry, Windows Mobile and Symbian versions are on the way.
