Waze launches a fabulous Boy George experience for Pride Month

The Boy George experience comes to Waze.

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:

A music and fashion icon who has, for decades, represented what it means to live authentically and unapologetically, Boy George uses his signature voice to create not only instant classics, but also impassioned songs that shine a light on the movement to secure the rights and liberties of the LGBTQIA+ community around the world. And now, for the first time, he's using this recognizable voice to navigate Wazers as they drive, giving us all a chance to feel what it's like to have Boy George in the passenger seat.

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.

How to watch England vs New Zealand: Live stream 2nd Test series cricket on

6 things Apple stole from Android at WWDC— and one that Google should steal

Every year, Apple and Google trade ideas for their newest versions of iOS and Android, respectively. But this year, during Apple's WWDC 2021, it seems like Apple purloined more than a few ideas that Google's integrated into Android over the last few years. Millions of iOS users won't get their hands on iOS 15 and iPadOS 15 until later this year, so until then, we don't know until then how the new features will fare in the real world. For now, here's a tongue-in-cheek look at six features Apple, um, borrowed from Android with its latest software releases.

The Galaxy Watch 4 is coming soon — here's everything you need to know

Samsung's Galaxy-brain play: leaving Tizen behind for Wear OS. The Samsung Galaxy Watch 3, one of the best Android smartwatches , may have only just launched in November 2020, but the latest rumors out of South Korea suggest the company may already be developing its replacement — with some big changes and upgrades in the works meant to topple Apple from its smartwatch throne. There's no confirmation whether Samsung's 2021 smartwatch will be named the "Galaxy Watch 4" or adopt a new name entirely. However, we know that this new watch will run the new version of Wear OS, which would have a big impact on app support and Android phone connectivity. It could also feature a newer-faster chipset, which could put it leagues ahead of the best Wear OS watches . Details are fairly scarce so far, but we've scrounged up every known leak about specs, design leaks, and pricing, along with everything else we know so far about the Samsung Galaxy Watch 4.
